Teenage platform pairing Matty Lee and Daniel Goodfellow won their second successive bronze medal of this year's Diving World Series in the 10 metres synchro in Dubai.

The newly-established British duo only made their senior international debut together in Beijing earlier this month, when they claimed third place off the highest board.

They stepped back on the podium on Thursday, albeit in a competition of four teams, after scoring 380.52. China's Cao Yuan and Lin Yue took gold with 475.32 points.

Lee and Goodfellow, who are 16 and 17 respectively, took most points for their inward three-and-a-half somersaults dive, netting 80.64.

Former European champions Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow claimed fifth in the women's 10m synchro.
