BBC Sport - Glasgow 2014: Adam Peaty returns with British 50m record

Peaty breaks British 50m record

England's Adam Peaty returns to the pool the day after winning Commonwealth 100m breaststroke gold with a British record of 27.00 seconds in his 50m heat.

Peaty, 19, stormed back to beat rival Cameron van der Burgh to gold in the 100m breaststroke on Saturday night in Glasgow, and edged out the South African once more in their 50m heat on Sunday.

Peaty's stunning performance in the 100m moved BBC Sport analyst and two-time Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington to tears.
