China left London having scooped five gold, four silver and one bronze medal at the 2019 FINA Diving World Series, as Yang Hao and Lian Junjie added another gold and silver respectively in London on Sunday.

In the men's 10m platform, Yang romped to the top of the rankings after his third dive, while local hero Tom Daley made a major mistake and dropped to the bottom.

Yang, who took gold in this event in Kazan last week, kept his momentum and won the title again with 559.90 points. His compatriot Lian took home silver with 532.10, followed by Daley's bronze with 525.25.

Daley's disappointment at finishing only third was arrested when he picked up gold with partner Grace Reid in the mixed 3m synchronized. The Chinese pair of Tai Xiaohu and Chen Yiwen missed out on a medal by just 0.12 points, losing out to Canada's Jennifer Abel and Francois Imbeau-Dulac.

Elsewhere, in the women's 3m springboard, Australia's Maddison Keeney took gold with 368.30 points. Canadian Abel, gold medalist in Kazan last week, had a mixed performance but managed to seal silver with 353.05. Nur Dhabitah Binti Sabri of Malaysia secured bronze with 344.40. Chinese diver Lin Shan took fifth place.

Next up for China's divers will be the 18th FINA World Championships from July 12 to 28 in Gwangju, South Korea.
