Olympic champion Matthew Mitcham blew a golden opportunity to win a maiden world title, plummeting from second to fourth with his final 10m platform dive at the FINA world championships on Tuesday.

The Australian was just 6.5 points behind Chinese teenager Qiu Bo heading into the final round at Foro Italico but managed only 83.60 points with his trademark dive to drop out of the medals.
