The Cardiff swimmer touched home in 2:22.34mins, taking three seconds off her own personal best, ahead of previous record holder Molly Renshaw.

It couldn't have gone any better at all. I didn't expect this. I trained really hard and I knew I had the potential to do it but I guess I lacked the self-confidence.

Commonwealth and European medallist Georgia Davies won the first British crown of day two in Glasgow as she led throughout the Women's 100m Backstroke final for victory.

I'm so pleased to be back where I wanted to be but there's still a lot more that I need to work on.

There are some girls going really fast all over the world right now at their trials or their nationals, so that's where I want to be.

– Georgia Davies

Although neither Tutton nor Davies achieved the consideration time for Olympic selection, their performances suggested they may yet have a shot of getting on the plane to Rio.

Tata steelworkers were invited onto the pitch ahead of Swansea City's match against Chelsea in a show of solidarity.

Steelworkers unveiled a "Save Our Steel" banner.

Ahead of the game, Community Union President Alan Coombs said:

"Everyone who comes to watch Swansea has a link to the port Talbot plant and there will be a couple of hundred, maybe a thousand regular season ticket holders who work there in the crowd. If anything happens to the plant, it would have an impact on the club."

Wales' Lee Selby recovered from a second-round knockdown to secure a unanimous decision victory over America's Eric Hunter in the second defence of his IBF featherweight title.

The talented 29-year-old hit the canvas when Hunter landed a powerful left hook in the second, but after two further even rounds he largely outboxed his challenger.

Two big right hands in the fifth were the first obvious signs that Selby had adapted to and was successfully reading Hunter.

He thereafter won the majority of the remaining rounds, including the eighth in which Hunter was deducted a point for repeatedly throwing too low, to secure scores of 115-111, 116-110 and 116-110 on the three judges' scorecards.
