Goodbye for now

That is the full menu digested and dispatched from Budapest for tonight.

Join us tomorrow for more action.

'We want to make history'

Adam Peaty speaking to BBC Sport: "I am so, so happy with my performances, but I know that I still have more in my locker. This medley team is on a three-year cycle, by the time Tokyo comes around, I don't want to say it, but we want to make history."

Gold medal

4x100m mixed medley relay

The United States win in a world record time of 3:38.56.

Great Britain miss out on a medal by three-tenths of a second with Canada and China sharing third.

4x100m mixed medley relay

Great Britain are second, 1.22 seconds off the United States as Siobhan O'Connor takes the final leg...

4x100m mixed medley relay

Right, the mixed 4x100m medley relay is next on the card.

The United States are hot favourites, but Great Britain are contenders. Georgia Davies, Adam Peaty, James Guy and Siobhan O'Connor are the British quartet.

Peaty's rival Cam VdB just said he's swimming a different kind of b/stroke. A 'metamorphosis between fly and breast'. Where's Attenborough?

Gold medal

Gabriele Detti (Italy)

Italy's Gabriele Detti takes gold in 7:40.77 as he goes out quick, is reeled in and then finds his second wind to power clear.

Poland's Wojciech Wojdak takes silver.

Sun Yang finishes down in fifth.

Men's 800m freestyle final

Medal ceremony

Men's 50m breastroke final

On your feet, hand on the heart, stare mistily into the middle distance.

The Union flag is going to be fluttering over Budapest.

Adam Peaty is going to pick up his second gold of the Championships.

Men's 200m individual medley semi-finals

Japan's Kosuke Hagino wins the second semi-final in 1:56.04, with Britain's Max Litchfield in second as he hangs tough in the final 30m to finish in 1:56.70.

That makes him third fastest into the final. No such luck for Mark Szaranek who is outside the final qualification standard with 1:58.80.

Men's 200m individual medley semi-finals

The magnificently-named American Chase Kalisz takes the first semi-final in a time of 1:55.88 and Japan's Daiya Seto manages a very creditable 1:56.92 in second.

But after the first three, the rest of the semi-final was not that rapid.

Britons Mark Szaranek and Max Litchfield go next and mind fancy their chances of booking a slot in the final.

Men's 200m individual medley semi-finals

Next up is the men's 200m individual medley semi-finals.

Japan's Daiya Seto, after taking a bronze in the men's 200m butterfly final, is straight back into the pool.

He has earned his gravy this evening.

Men's 200m butterfly final

Burt Le Clos wipes away a tear as son Chad picks up his gold medal from the 200m butterfly on a podium high above the pool.

Hungarian legend Laszlo Cseh joins him on the top step as the South African anthem falls away.

Women's 200m butterfly semi-final

Germany's Franziska Hentke take the second semi-final in 2:06.29, but Britain's Alys Thomas is sixth in 2:08.72 and outside the final qualification standard.

Women's 200m butterfly semi-final

China's Yilin Zhou wins the first semi-final in a time of 2:06.63.

That sluggish heat has left the door ajar for Alys Thomas in the second semi-final. If the Briton can reproduce her personal best then she might well have a berth in the final.

Gold medal

Adam Peaty (GB)

But no world record this time!

Adam Peaty wins in 25.99 seconds, four hundredths of a second outside the steaming mark that he set yesterday.

Another gold medal, but the clock is his real opposition having run out of human fodder.

Adam Peaty storms to 50m breaststroke gold

Men's 50m breastroke final

The union jacks are fluttering in the crowd.

Can Adam Peaty complete the double double, winning both the 50m and 100m breastroke titles here as he did in Kazan?

We are about to find out...

Peaty poolside

Men's 50m breastroke final

Adam Peaty has the five fastest 50m breastroke times in history.

He is the heaviest of favourites. A copper-bottomed top dog.

The biggest challenge is likely to come from his inside where previous world record holder Cameron van der Burgh.

He is up in the 50m breastroke final in just a couple of minutes.

Adam Peaty is a beast in the gym

Gold medal

Chad Le Clos (South Africa)

Well, well, well.

Chad Le Clos went out hard. It seemed far too hard.

But the South African clung on for dear life and Laszlo Cseh can't make up the ground in second. Daiya Seto is third.

Le Clos almost apologises to the home crowd for upsetting Cseh's homecoming.

Men's 200m butterfly final

South Africa's Chad Le Clos leads, and by quite a lot at the halfway stage.

But the Hungarians are massing behind him. Tamas Kenderesi and Laszlo Cseh are both looming...

Final alert

Men's 200m butterfly

A real heavyweight ding-dong of a final now in the men's 200m butterfly.

Hungarian pair Tamas Kenderesi and Laszlo Cseh are either side of Japan's Deiya Seto in the middle of the pool.

Women's 50m backstroke semi-final

Rebecca Adlington

Double Olympic gold-medal winning swimmer on BBC Two

That was a great swim from Georgia Davies - we haven't seen her achieve a personal best in a while so it's great to see her back on form - she looks in incredible shape.

She is swimming in the relay later so hopefully she will be buzzing off of winning that semi.

Medieros takes second semi

Women's 50m backstroke semi-final

The gauntlet hits the pool with a slap.

Brazil's Etiene Medieros wins the second semi-final is a blistering 27.18 seconds ahead of China's Yuanhui Fu, another hundredth of a second back.

United States Kathleen Baker in third.

All three are quicker than Great Britain's Georgia Davies, who won the first semi-final.

Davies sets GB record

Women's 50m backstroke semi-final

Great Britain's Georgia Davies: The depth here is incredible and I knew I couldn't leave anything behind. I wanted to go in and swim as fast as I could to book my place in the final tomorrow.

Steve Parry

Olympic bronze medal swimmer on BBC Two

Great skills there. Her finish was fantastic! She didn't look like winning it with 3m to go but had touch a great touch at the end.

Davies sets new GB record

Women's 50m backstroke

Great Britain's Georgia Davies wins the 50m backstroke semi-final is a rapid 27.49, stretching out to touch ahead of her rivals.

That is a new British record as well.

Australia's Emily Seebohm is second, just two hundredths of a second behind.

Steve Parry

Olympic bronze medal swimmer on BBC Radio

Caeleb Dressel just gets so much off the start. He is not the fastest off the blocks, but it is just his underwater work is phenomenal.

The question mark is whether he can do it when it matters.

Men's 100m freestyle semi-final

American Caeleb Dressel is lightning off the start and hangs on to take the second semi-final ahead of compatriot Nathan Adrian.

Duncan Scott's place in Friday's final is assured as the sixth fastest finisher across the two semis.

Men's 100m freestyle semi-final

Great Britain's Duncan Scott speaking to BBC Two: "I was happy with that. it has been a tough couple of days and it will be a real dogfight tomorrow night. This is not an event that you would necessarily pick me for. They are all big guys but I try to use my height-weight ratio to my advantage."

Men's 100m freestyle semi-final

Not the best starts from Scott but he brings it back and sneaks into third place.

Frenchman Mehdy Metella earns a lifetime best to win the first semi - 47.6.

This second is quick. Very quick.

It might be enough but Scott will be keeping a very close eye on this.

Men's 100m freestyle semi-final

Steve Parry

Olympic bronze medal swimmer on BBC Two

Duncan Scott's time of 48.1 seconds should, should be enough to make the final. He looked really powerful down the second 50m.

Men's 100m freestyle semi-final

Next up we have the Men's 100m freestyle semi-finals.

Look out for Britain's Duncan Scott in the first heat.

The second semi looks pretty fast so he may have to swim his best to make the final...

McKeon takes bronze

Women's 200m freestyle final

Emma McKeon took bronze by the way.

Federica Pellegrini's winning time was 1:54.73, with Katie Ledecky back in 1:55.18.

Rebecca Adlington

Double Olympic gold-medal winning swimmer on BBC Two

I would have put my house on Ledecky winning that!

Steve Parry

Olympic bronze medal swimmer on BBC Two

Katie Ledecky is human after all. She hasn't lost in four years.

She isn't the Queen of middle distance swimming anymore. Pellegrini has shown Ledecky has got a weakness.

Gold medal - Women's 200m freestyle

Federica Pellegrini (ITA)

Well, no-one saw that coming.

Federica Pellegrini was a metre down with about 55m to go, but the Italian found reserves of steel and resolve to come on strong and prove there is still life in those legs yet at the age of 28.

Katie Ledecky looks utterly befuddled in second.
