Diving: Man arrested over Daley tweet
A man has been arrested in connection to Twitter abuse directed at British diver Tom Daley.
Daley and his partner Pete Waterford narrowleey missed out on medals when they finished fourth in the men’s 10m platform diving on Monday.
The pair lost out in the medals to teams from China, Mexico and the USA, having at one stage looked odds on for at least bronze, however, they fell just short.
Following this incident Daley took to Twitter and promptly retweeted a message from user Rileyy69 which said; "You let your dad down i hope you know that."
Daley, who’s father died last year then posted "After giving it my all... you get idiots sending me this..."
Afterwards the user Rileyy69 tried to backtrack after criticism for other tweeters and responded by writing; "@TomDaley1994 I'm sorry mate i just wanted you to win cause its the olympics I'm just annoyed we didn't win I'm sorry tom accept my apology."
He later added; "please i don't want to be hated I'm just sorry you didn't win i was rooting for you pal to do britain all proud just so upset."
However, following that, a man has been arrested by the Dorset police as they begin their investigation into the incident.
A spokesman for the Dorset police said; "A 17-year-old male was arrested by Dorset Police officers in the early hours this morning at a guesthouse in the Weymouth area on suspicion of malicious communications.
"He is currently helping police with their inquiries."
Elsewhere, British swimming legend Duncan Goodhew said that people should be more considerate when using social media, especially as this follows hot on the heels of comedian Frankie Boyle’s disparaging remarks about swimmer Rebecca Adlington.
"It is appalling that people behave that way. Becky Adlington, in fact, suffered probably far worse abuse, as well, if you remember the kerfuffle some years ago," he told ITV's Daybreak.
"I suppose that social media in one sense is fantastic, but turned the wrong way round it is very, very personal and it destroys people's lives.
"So I think people should be much more careful about what they say."
