Adam Peaty has won Gold in the Commonwealth Games in the 100m breast stroke.

The 23-year-old Olympic, world and European champion defended the title he won at the 2014 Glasgow Games, clocking 58.84 seconds.

The Silver went to English team mate James Wilby.

Peaty, who will return for the 50m breaststroke heats on Sunday, said:

I was out on world record pace at 50, but it's April.

I went out there tonight to get to that 50 as fast as I could and hold on.

Even though it's a gold medal and it's four years undefeated and that's completed the circle, I'm not happy with that performance.

It's not the best version of me. I want to go out there on the 50 and try to get that better version.

– Adam Peaty

When asked how long his unbeaten sequence can continue, Peaty said "a lifetime - if I keep at it".

He has previously said he hopes to compete up to the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics.

Adam, who started his swimming career at the Dove Valley Swimming Club in Uttoxeter, has had a phenomenal few years, breaking World Records in both the 100m and 50m breaststroke.

He competes again tomorrow in the 50m breaststroke heats.
