Olympic updates: Adam Peaty, the boy who was scared of water, stormed to Olympic glory as Team GB finally struck gold at Rio 2016. He beat the Defending champion Cameron van der Burgh

World record holder Peaty, 21, became only the fourth British man to win an Olympic swimming title in 40 years when he romped home in the 100 metres breaststroke final.
