VIDEO: Tom Daley helps 'Mobot' charity record to become a splash hit
DIVER Tom Daley said he had no plans for a "Tombot" celebration after performing Mo Farah's victory dance for a charity music video.
Tom, 18, did the Mobot on a Life Centre diving board in a bid to help his fellow Olympian to the Christmas No.1 spot.
He was filmed doing the distinctive dance alongside scores of celebrities for the online video accompanying the runner's charity single.

And while performers such as London Mayor Boris Johnson struggle to throw a shape, Tom completes them upside down and while diving from the board.
He added: "It does look embarrassing and cringe-worthy when I watch my part, though I have not seen the whole video.
"I don't think I would be able to include any of the moves in my competition dives."
Tom added he was not planning his own personal celebration, maybe a "Tombot".
He said: "There is nothing I can think I would be able to do."
The M-shaped Mobot gesture was made famous as Farah ran to double gold in the London Olympics. It was made up by sports presenter Clare Balding and comedian James Corden.
Now he has released Do the Mobot featuring a whole dance routine to raise money for children in Africa.
Celebrities ranging from boxer David Haye to presenter Holly Willoughby have been filmed for the video.
But Tom is the only one who performs to the music by Tigermonkey standing on his hands, with the Life Centre in the background.
He added: "I can do a handstand and balance on my hands almost as well as I can balance on my feet.
"It was not too difficult to throw the shape and jump off the board."
Tom said someone played the music and he performed the routine for about 30 seconds.
He added: "It would be lovely if the music got to No.1 and made as much money as possible for the charity."
The single raises money for the Mo Farah Orphange and Sports Academy in Somalia.
Tom, who won a bronze medal at the Olympics for his more conventional moves, was yesterday at the Sports Personality of the Year awards.
Do The Mobot is not the only Plymouth connected song trying to make it to the top spot at Christmas.
As reported in Saturday's Herald city graduate Rob Drake-Knight has teamed up a host of big-hitting celebrities to make a charity recording in aid of the Badger Trust.
Other rivals for the number one slot including X-Factor winner James Arthur (who clinched No 1 yesterday) and The Justice Collective's Hillsborough single.
