Tom Daley will make his return from injury at the World Championships next month after being named in Great Britain's team for the event in Barcelona.

The Olympic bronze medalist was forced to miss the European Championships after suffering a triceps injury in April.

Daley has also sat out much of the World Cup series with the injury, but has been deemed fit enough to compete in the 10m individual platform competition and recently returned from a training camp in Mallorca.

"I really enjoy the level of competition at a World Championships and it'll be great to get back on the boards again," said the Plymouth-born diver.

"The sport of diving is very much down to how you perform on the day. Anything can happen when you step on to those boards.

"It's been a tough couple of months, but I'll keep working hard towards being as good as I possibly can be."

Overall nine Olympians have been included in The British Gas GBR Diving Team, including 16-year-old World Championship debutant Daniel Goodfellow, who will line up alongside Daley, gold medalist at the worlds in 2009, in the 10m individual.

Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow, who won silver at the European Championships, will compete in both the Individual and Synchronised 10m Platform events.

Jack Laugher will also be in action, and will take part in the 1m and 3m Springboard event. Nick Robinson-Baker and Chris Mears have been named as the 3m Synchro partnership.

The 2013 World Championships in Barcelona get underway on July 20.
