Uttoxeter swimmer Adam Peaty followed up his world record time with a World Championship win in South Korea.

Yesterday (21 July), the 24-year-old once again re-wrote the record books as he became the first man in history to break 57 seconds - beating his own record with a time of 56.88 in the semi finals of the 100-metres breaststroke.

He said getting the sub 57 second time 'feels incredible', as it was something he has been chasing for three years.

Today (22 July), he took the World Championship title for a third time, after finishing ahead of fellow British swimmer James Wilby in South Korea.

The Olympic champion has not lost over the 100m distance for five years.
