Adam Peaty secured his third medal of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games after helping England to a second-place finish in the 4x100m medley final. The Uttoxeter-born swimmer swam his breaststroke leg in 57.64 seconds which was his fastest time in these Games.

However, it wasn’t enough to secure gold as compatriot Ben Proud tired up in the final 50 metres and Australia’s Kyle Chalmers just pipped Proud to the wall by 0.09 seconds as the Australians set a new Commonwealth record of 3:31. James Guy and Luke Greenbank made up the quartet.
