Adam Peaty: 'Gold medal win is a dream'

Team England swimmer Adam Peaty admits that he can't believe that he managed to defeat his idol Cameron van der Burgh to win gold at the Commonwealth Games.

Team England swimmer Adam Peaty has admitted that it was a "dream" come true to win the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in the men's 100m breaststroke.

The 19-year-old broke the British and Games record to finish ahead of South Africa's Cameron van der Burgh and clinch the Commonwealth title.

He told BBC Sport: "I can't believe it! It's a dream. I've studied Cameron van der Burgh for a while, he was my idol now my rival so I know he goes off quick but I caught him."

Scotland's Ross Murdoch added to his medal tally as he secured bronze in the event.
