So, a quick recap of the day's action here in Italy. In the men's event, an astonishing display of diving by Gary Hunt launched him to victory and a personal best ever score of 548.20. Over in the women's competition Rachelle Simpson topped the podium, and in doing so she successfully defended her World Series title.
Gary Hunt is asked if he is "man or machine" as he leaves the water. If he is man, he's certainly the only man in the world who can pull off such a dive from the heavens.
Hello from sunny Polignano a Mare, in southern Italy, where we'll be bringing you coverage of all the action as it happens today. Stay tuned for live updates, images and comments before, during and after the event. Don't forget, you'll also be able to watch the competition live and exclusive, right here from 4pm (CEST).
That was simply sensational from Gary, with two 10s from the judges. He's back to winning ways here in Italy.
The crowd go wild, Gary Hunt nails his dive with a ripped entry. He's surged past Orlando Duque and takes the win with 548.20.
So, over to Gary Hunt, with a running take-off. Here we go...
477.85 for Jonathan puts him in second place
Now, Jonathan Paredes, what can you do?
Blake Aldridge came into this competition confident of a podium finish, but his hopes have vanished with a score of 456.95.
Superb stuff Orlando! 480.30, and that will put pressure on the next three divers.
Now for Orlando Duque. He celebrated his 41st birthday on Friday, now what can the Peter Pan of cliff diving do?
Andy Jones is into second spot behind Navratil, with a score of 461.45
Artem Silchenko is next. It's a horrendous looking entry and that has got to hurt. He gives the OK signal, but looks a little shaken. A score of 399.00 will not be enough for a podium finish, that's for sure.
Michal Navratil next...nails it!! He's up to 463.85 now
So, we move swiftly onto the men's final. Kris Kolanus is up first, but a poor entry costs him and his total score is 325.25
Here are the final scores for the women's event. Well done to Rachelle Simpson on her back-to-back World Championships
Rachelle Simpson (490)
Ginger Leigh Huber (420)
Cesilie Carlton (400)
Anna Bader (310)
Lysanne Richard (290)
Rachelle's done it! Not her best dive ever but it's enough and she takes the crown. Superb, back to back World Championships for her.
So, that leaves the door open for Rachelle Simpson. If she wins this, she will be World Champion...
Oh no! A disastrous entry for Cesilie (200.15). She won't be winning today
Cesilie Carlton and Rachelle Simpson will be last to dive. Here comes Cesilie...
Ginger Leigh Huber up first...and she's into the lead with 231.6
Yana Nestsiarava (209.5) currently leads, but here come the top three American women...
Next up, it's the women's final. One dive, let's see who will be crowned World Champion.
So, after the men's first two head-to-head rounds, here are the 8 divers through to the final -

Apologies for the lack of updates, we have been experiencing some technical difficulties but will be back up and running shortly.
Wow! Gary Hunt (203.3) looks in the mood to win today, leaping up into second place. Meanwhile, a sloppy landing from Sergio Guzman (133.0) may well have ended his podium chances today.
Artem Silchenko (201.4) has nailed his first head-to-head dive against Jose Wilker (155.8). Jonathan Paredes (205.2) currently leads, having beautifully executed his first head-to-head dive against Steven LoBue (167.2).
Great news...Artem Silchenko will indeed be diving today. He injured his leg yesterday, but the competition leader is going to brave the pain and compete.
All 22 athletes are just being introduced to a huge, excited crowd. It's nearly time to dive...
1 hour to go...warm up dives are underway
It's already getting hot here in the south of Italy, perfect weather for some cliff diving.
