James HEATLY (GBR) - bronze

On winning the bronze medal in the men's 1m springboard final:

"It feels absolutely amazing. I had a bit of a shaky start so to come through for this, I don't really know what to say."

On securing the bronze medal on his last dive, his best and hardest dive:

"I quite like to know during events where I'm ranking and I knew it needed to be a good one. I put that dive last because it is one of my better ones and luckily it's one of the hardest ones as well, so it worked out."

On winning the bronze medal in front of a home crowd at his home pool where he trains:

"These are the boards that I train on every day so it just felt like another competition, but to be at home - it gives you that nice feeling inside."

On what he plans to do after this event:

"This is my last event here so I have a bit of a break. I will be team cheerleader, watching and supporting the rest of the team, then a bit of a summer holiday, and then back to training."

On how Great Britain's team spirit having won two gold medals and a bronze medal on Tuesday:

"Everyone is feeling really good. There is nothing better than watching your team-mates do well. It just spurs you on. We've had a good second day and we have a lot more events to go. We have such a strong team. We've got a lot of medals to come I reckon."
