Who Broke The Pot?

Three friends Jim, Sam and Tom were playing in the garden and one of them broke a pot. While enquiring about it the three friends answered as follows:

Jim: I haven’t broken the pot.

Sam: I haven’t broken the pot.

Tom: Sam has broken the pot.

If only one of them is speaking the truth, then who broke the pot?
