Tom Daley has suffered disappointment at the Olympics.
The Plymouth diver and partner Pete Waterfield have just missed out on a medal in the men's ten metre synchro, finishing fourth.
The pair were in the lead after three dives but a bad leap sent them plummeting down the standings.
China cllinched the gold medal.
The Prime Minister has paid tribute to Tom Daley, describing him as a "brilliant young man"
David Cameron took the tube to the Aquatics Centre to see the teenager in action, adding "he is incredibly dedicated, and it's really inspiring watching him."
Monday was not the best day at the office for Restronguet sailor Ben Ainslie either.
The three-times gold medalist has slipped into third place in the Finn Class after finishing sixth and twelfth in todays races.
He said he is not taking anything for granted: "I like to think about history. History says the host nation performs better. That's on paper. Ultimately it's down to the teams, the athletes, the competitors to go out there and prove it. We've got to make the most of the home crowd."
Over the weekend Penzance rower Helen Glover set a new Olympic record as she qualified for the finals of the women's pairs.
She and partner Hannah Stanning stormed through the first heat in front of 35,000. They managed a new best time of 6min 57.29 seconds.
Schoolgirl Ruta Meilutyte, also from Plymouth has shocked the swimming world after qualifying for the 100m breaststroke family almost a second faster than anyone else.
The fifteen year old demolished the rest of the world class field throughout the heats and semi-final.
