Tom Daley, Jack Laugher and Chris Mears are in the 13-strong diving squad Team England has announced for April's Commonwealth Games.

Daley, the current 10 metres platform world champion, and Laugher and Mears, who won the synchronised 3m springboard event at the Rio 2016 Olympics, all claimed Commonwealth gold medals four years ago in Glasgow.

Another 2014 champion featuring in the squad to travel to Australia's Gold Coast is Alicia Blagg.

Seventeen-year-old Matthew Dixon, who last month won the 10m platform title at the British Championships in Daley's absence, is also in the group. Dixon competed at the Glasgow Games aged 14.

Team England squad: Robyn Birch, Alicia Blagg, Tom Daley, Matthew Dixon, Daniel Goodfellow, Jack Haslam, Ross Haslam, Jack Laugher, Matty Lee, Chris Mears, Katherine Torrance, Lois Toulson, Noah Williams.
