Oliver Hynd has won silver in 400m freestyle after surprisingly being edged out by Wang Yinan of China.

It was a close battle between the two of them. Hynd failed to use his quick finish to overturn the Chinese, who swam a fast final 50m to hang on with his time of 4:27.11 to Hynd's 4:32.93.

Hynd's brother Sam took bronze after dropping back in the second half of the race.

The third GB competitor Thomas Young just missed out on the medals, finishing fourth.
