Grace Reid says it is “a massive relief” to have secured a place at next year’s Tokyo Olympics after reaching the World Diving Championship 3m springboard final in South Korea.

The Scot, 23, was at the bottom of the semi-final standings after two of the five rounds but moved up to eighth to progress to Friday’s 12-strong final.

“Honestly, I’m so happy,” she said.

“There’s so much pressure coming into this because there are so many people who are capable of this.”

Reid, who won gold in the 1m springboard at last year’s Commonwealth Games, will also compete in the mixed 3m synchronised event with Tom Daley on Saturday and bid to better the world silver medal they won together in 2017.
