Echo date function

Probably a very easy quection but I can’t work it out. I have a database which has a date column in it. It stores the dates in the following format:
2004-08-02 14:57:51

How can I get php to echo only the date part of this and leave out the timestamp in the following format: 02/08/2004?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks for the help.

echo date('d/m/Y', strtotime('2004-08-02 14:57:51'));
