Adrian Moorhouse believes that Adam and his coach Mel Marshall ought to target a longer distance event next. 

"If he wants a new challenge to keep him going, then I would go for the 200 if I was him and Mel," the 1988 Seoul gold medalist said. 

"There's only so much he can do in that (100m), just keep on repeat, repeat, repeat."

"It was an absolute incredible swim. I mean he got world record in the heat. 

"Then he went another fast time in the semi and then to get a world record late at night, in Brazil, a lot of people would have wondered if he could have done that. 

"And he beat people by a full body's length. We're ever so proud of him."

"Obsessing over the small details when you're at the training pool is the right thing to do," said Foster.

"The purity of Adam's gift is that when it comes to that critical moment, he doesn't overthink it. He stays in the moment: I'm here, I'm ready, let's go."

"It's the smoothness of Peaty's action that defines him," according to four-time Olympian Karen Pickering.

"The timing of his arms and legs is so good - the perfect stroke sees them working together, with the leg-kick driving the arms forward, not interfering with the last part of the pull."

He now finds himself at 10/1 with William Hill.

"There is a long way to go but Adam Peaty has been exceptional and his performance might well mean he is named our sports personality of the year," said company spokesman Rupert Adams.
