The teenage diving sensation found out the last of his results just days after he took bronze in the 10m platform dive at London 2012, sparking wild scenes of jubilation in the Aquatics Centre.
Daley’s achievement was all the more remarkable because it came at the end of a turbulent period in his life beginning when his father Rob died of cancer last year.
He overcame his grief to follow up on his debut performance in Beijing with a medal in London, despite having to endure offensive comments on Twitter after narrowly missing out with a fourth place in the synchronised diving earlier in the competition.
The 18-year-old, who studied at Plymouth College, announced on Twitter yesterday that he had achieved an A-grade in Spanish, to add to an A* in photography and A at maths AS-level after he took some exams last year at the age of 17.
Daley tweeted: “I got an A in Spanish! Overall I have A* photography (A2), A Spanish (A2) and A maths (AS) thanks @PlymColleg1 ”
