Peaty follows in Adlington's footsteps
- From the section Swimming
Ahead of the World Swimming Championships, Adam Peaty's mother gives BBC East Midlands Today an insight into just how much her son has in common with double Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington.
Addlington, whose passion for footwear earned her a pair of gold-coloured shoes after winning gold in Beijing, is a mentor for the City of Derby star.
While Peaty does not have a stash of high heels, he does have a collection of trainers to rival Adlington's collection.
