Team GB diving superstar Tom Daley joins the Eurosport team for coverage of the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Team GB diver Tom Daley will join the on-screen team for Eurosport and discovery+'s coverage of the Olympic Games in Paris this summer.

The 30-year-old is heading to the French capital for what will be his fifth Games - and together with new synchro partner Noah Williams he will be looking to retain his gold medal from Tokyo.

After his competition is over, Daley will then become a presenter and commentator for Eurosport and discovery+, which has the UK and Ireland rights to broadcast every moment from every competition at the Olympics live.

Other former athletes commentating for the broadcaster include James Cracknell (rowing), Lutalo Muhammad (taekwando), Ellie Simmonds (swimming), Iwan Thomas (athletics), Nile Wilson (gymnastics), Ugo Monye (rugby sevens), Carl Frampton (boxing) and Laura Robson (tennis).

The lead presenter of the Olympics coverage is Laura Woods - known for heading up TNT's Champions League coverage - alongside Craig Doyle and Orla Chennaoui.

Linear coverage of the Games will go out on Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2, plus seven pop-up Eurosport channels on Virgin Media, while complete coverage - offering more than 55 simultaneous live feeds - will be available through streaming service discovery+.

A special Olympics offer will allow customers to sign up for discovery+'s Standard plan for £3.99 a month until the end of the calendar year, with the regular price of £6.99 a month returning in January 2025.

Free-to-air coverage of the Olympics will also go out on the BBC in the UK, although their sublicensing deal with Discovery will only allow them to broadcast two live streams simultaneously.

The Olympics take place from July 26 to August 11, with some competitions beginning slightly earlier on July 24.
