Daley, who won bronze for Great Britain in the discipline at London 2012, scored 577.20 to finish second behind China's Qiu Bo, who took gold with 583.95.

Russia's Victor Minibaev finished in bronze position with a total of 557.90.

Following the result, Daley praised coach Jane Figueiredo as he posted on Twitter: "SILVER!!! And a new personal best score!! So happy all my hard work is paying off! Massive thanks to my coach Jane :)."

The success came a day after fellow British diver Jack Laugher took bronze in the three-metre springboard.
