The 18-year-old, who stormed to a bronze medal in the Olympic 10m men’s platform event, sent a message to his 1.5 million followers on micro-blogging site Twitter this morning.

Daley, who was collecting his A-level Spanish mark today, wrote: “I got an A in Spanish! Overall I have A* photography (A2), A Spanish (A2) and A maths (AS) :) thanks @PlymColleg1 :D”

Plymouth College, which also counts 100m gold medal swimmer Ruta Meilutyte, 15, among its pupils, replied on Twitter: “Brilliant, well done. A nice addition to your Olympic bronze medal!”

Daley scored an A* in photography at the Devon college last year. He will return to Plymouth in September to complete his maths A-level and to study Spanish at a higher level, a spokesman confirmed.

Daley has been a student at Plymouth College since April 2009 when, as a 15-year-old, he was taken out of Plymouth’s state-run Eggbuckland Community College, after claiming he was being bullied.
