BARCELONA (AFP) - Chinese diver Qiu Bo made amends for the disappointment of missing out on Olympic gold last year to retain his world title in the men's 10m platform final on Sunday.

Qiu produced a near flawless display to finish well clear on 581 points with American Olympic champion David Boudia second on 517.40 points and Germany's Sascha Klein back in third on 508.55 points.

However, there was disappointment for Britain's Tom Daley as he was hampered by a torn tricep and could finish only sixth.

It was sweet revenge for Qiu, who was surprisingly edged out from the top of the podium in London by Boudia, as his victory meant China finished the diving meet with nine out of a possible 10 golds.
