Simmonds 'really happy' with second gold

I'm so pleased that I won - a world record again, another PB and to go on the podium again. I'm just so chuffed. Two golds now and I'm going to enjoy it.

That was a tough race. I was just trying to go as fast as I can and to do a PB. I'm just really happy.

My front crawl is my main stroke, it's where my advantage is, where I catch people up. She was ahead of me, and I panicked a bit. I didn't know if I could catch her up. I just kicked for home and really went for it.
