The 'Chasing The Sun' star tells the 18 year-old diving champion he's "got this" ahead of the event.

The Wanted's Tom Parker has wished British diver Tom Daly good luck ahead of his performance later today at the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

18 year-old Tom Daley is due to take part in the Men's Syncro 10m Platform later today (30th July) from 3pm as part of this year's Olympic Games, and 'Glad You Came' singer Tom says he is backing the young diver for a medal.

"Good luck to @tomdaley1994 tomorrow too!" Tom Parker tweeted yesterday (29th July). "You got this bro!" 

The 'Chasing The Sun' singer also had high praise for fellow Team GB members Lizzie Armistead and Rebecca Adlington, who both won medals yesterday in the women's road cycling and swimming 400m freestyle events, respectively.

"Olympics has been wicked up to now," he posted. "Lizzie Armistead did amazing this afternoon! Going to watch Rebecca Adlington swim now!"

The Wanted performed live in London's Hyde Park last week (26th July) as part of the Olympic Torch Relay Finale presented by Coca-Cola, after which they admitted the band have been "gripped" by Olympic fever this week.

As part of the opening of the Olympic Games The Wanted also got the opportunity to meet US first lady Michelle Obama, who reportedly told the band her daughters with President Obama are big fans of their music.

The Wanted are hard at work on the follow-up to their 2011 album 'Battleground', and their new songs have been hailed as "incredible" by Justin Bieber's managed Scooter Braun.
