Leeds diving stars awarded MBE's

19th May 2017

City of Leeds diving stars Chris Mears and Jack Laugher have received MBE's at Buckingham Palace today.

The pair won gold at last summer's Olympic games in Rio in the synchronised three-metre springboard event.

Mears was given just a 5% chance of survival in 2009 after suffering a ruptured spleen.
