Adam Peaty's 'overwhelming' send off for Rio 2016

Uttoxeter swimmer Adam Peaty had an 'overwhelming' send off last night, as he made his way to Rio for this year's Olympic games.

Peaty set the 100 metres breaststroke world record of 57.92 seconds in London in April 2015 in qualifying for the World Championships in Kazan, which he won.

He is the only man to have ever dipped beneath 58secs in the event.
