ADAM Peaty produced a storming last 25 metres to land the Commonwealth 100m breaststroke title on a night of double Glasgow gold for England at the Tollcross Swimming Centre.

The 19-year-old reeled in South Africa’s Cameron van der Burgh in the closing stages to touch in a Games record of 58.94 seconds, with home favourite Ross Murdoch taking the bronze.

Peaty’s gold followed success for Fran Halsall in the 50m freestyle and took England’s gold medal tally in the pool to four.
