Tom Daley shrugs off an elbow injury to be passed fit for the FINA World Championships in Barcelona.

Tom Daley has been passed fit for next month's FINA World Championships in Barcelona.

The Olympic bronze medallist recently suffered an elbow injury, but has recovered in time to defend his world title in Spain.

"The plan is for him to go," Daley's coach Andy Banks told BBC Sport. "The tear on the latest scan has gone, but there's some bone bruising which we've had to be careful with.

"We've only been going [off the platform in training] feet first for about three to four weeks now, just to keep the pressure off the elbow and not to re-injure it because if that had happened we would have definitely put the World Championships out for this year."

British Swimming are expected to name their diving squad for the competition by the end of the month.
