Olympic champion Adam Peaty narrowly missed out on breaking his own world record as he claimed the 50m breaststroke title at the British Swimming Championships in Sheffield.

England’s Peaty, who claimed the 100m on day one, finished six hundredths of a second outside his record in a “very frustrating” time of 26.48 seconds.

But the 22-year-old, who has already booked his place at July’s World Championships in Budapest, now believes he could go below the 26-second mark this summer.
