Magnifico! Best Pictures from Italy Final

A 70,000-strong crowd gathered in beautiful Polignano a Mare for the event.

Rachelle Simpson and Sergio Guzman in front of the statue of legendary Italian singer Domenico Modugno who was born in Polignano a Mare and was the man who sang the world famous “Volare”, which fittingly enough means "to fly".

#

The divers were carried through the town on their way to the platforms.

#

Steven LoBue made his way onto the podium for the first time this season with a 2nd-place finish.

#

Rhiannan Iffland was aiming for a hat-trick of wins, but she was pipped to the top of the podium by Lysanne Richard.

#

Wildcard Kris Kolanus prepares to dive from 27m.

#

Italian Alessandro De Rose was cheered on by the home fans...

#

...and the wildcard almost had the perfect day, just missing out on the podium in 4th place.

#

The fans look on as cliff diving legend Orlando Duque fires himself away from the platform.

#

He's been trying it all season, and on Sunday Artem Silchenko finally nailed his blind entry...

#

...and that stunning dive launched him to the top of the podium for the first time in two years.

#

Lysanne Richard had to dig deep under pressure in her final dive to get past Rhiannan Iffland...

#

...and the Canadian kept her composure to grab victory, later celebrating with Artem Silchenko.
