British diver Jack Laugher has been named European male diver of the year for a second time.
Olympic champion Laugher, who also picked up the award in 2016, has celebrated a successful season in 2018 with five international titles.
The 23-year-old from Harrogate won three golds at the Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast in April.
At the European Championships in Glasgow four months later, he secured a further two golds.
The award is organised by Ligue Europeenne de Natation (Len).
"This award is the culmination of a lot of hard work, not just last year but throughout my career," Laugher said.
"I'm really proud to be part of such a golden era for British diving."
