Adam Peaty has expressed his gratitude towards mentor Rebecca Adlington after she congratulated the England swimmer on securing his first Commonwealth Games gold medal.
Former swimmer Adlington, who shed tears during a broadcast for BBC Sport after watching Peaty win gold, personally congratulated the Brit with a hug during his lap of honour.
"She's my mentor, so she provides things that I need to know before my race and how to approach certain areas of the race," Peaty told Sports Mole.
"She's been a great support - she sends me a few good luck messages, which really helps and the support is great from her."
Peaty also broke the Commonwealth Games record by winning the race in 58.94 seconds.
