The Daily Mail's Tom Daley front page has angered a lot of people
Tom Daley won a bronze medal for Team Great Britain in the men's 10 metre synchronised diving on Monday.
What's missing from that statement?

You're right. One person cannot win a synchronised event. In order to be synchronised, you need to synchronise with a partner. In this case, the other bronze medal winner was Daniel Goodfellow, but rather cruelly, the Olympic medalist was completely left off the Daily Mail's front page story.

Both Daley - and Goodfellow - began training together last October, clinched only GB's eighth Olympic diving medal after pipping Germany to third place in a tense finish. China's Lin Yue and Chen Aisen, the pre-competition favourites, won gold by a comfortable margin.
Although the British public are overjoyed with the pair's incredible achievement, the front page snub left a bitter taste in some people's mouth. The general consensus is that only one half of the team is getting the credit they both deserve.
and is that meant to be a surprise ? You do know it was a syncro dive where's the other guy ???? Ridiculous journalism

didn't Tom win as part of a duo? Why only a picture of him?

Congrats to Tom Daley (and his synchro partner Dan Goodfellow, who seems to be getting cropped out of the story): pic.twitter.com/DEizCZT14s
