Prankster crashes Diving World Series before Tom Daley wins gold

Joseph McCormick May 4, 2015

A prankster managed to breach security and make a dive from a 10m platform during the weekend’s Diving World Series in London.

Tom Daley won gold at the event which took place at the London Acquatics Centre on Sunday. 

But not before another man managed to evade security and dive into the pool from the 10m platform.

The intruder pulled off his tracksuit to reveal just Speedos, before rushing up the stairs and jumping into the pool.

Despite some cheers, the intruder was bood by the crowd as he was escorted out by security.

He has since the event been revealed as Dan Jarvis, a member of Troll Station, YouTube prank group.

Mr Jarvis said: “It was just a bit of fun. The guy who was getting ready to dive on the top board was laughing at me.”

He was fined £90 under the public order act.
