He was hotly tipped to top the podium after qualifying for the 50m butterfly final with a season's best time of 23.16 seconds. And he didn't disappoint at the Tollcross swimming centre.

The 19-year-old finished half a stroke ahead of his rival, the veteran south african Ronald Schoeman, recording a time of just 22.93 seconds.

And it wasn't just a gold medal he won. Proud also set a new Commonwealth record and British record as well.
