Tom Daley's new coach Jane Figueiredo believes that the teenager can add more facets to his diving.

Jane Figueiredo has said that there is still room for improvement in Tom Daley's diving.

Figueiredo will coach the 19-year-old British Olympic bronze medallist for the Rio Olympics in 2016.

"There are some things technically we need to improve on but that's just me being a critical coach," she told BBC Sport. "He is a massive talent.

"Having worked with the Russian girls, I couldn't think of anything more exhilarating or more fun than to work with someone who takes diving to a whole new level - we are shooting for that gold."

Figueiredo worked with British divers at the 1996 Atlanta Games and has helped Russian divers to six Olympic medals.
