Britain's Adam Peaty celebrates.

Britain’s Olympic champion Adam Peaty won 100m breaststroke gold at the European Short Course Championships.

The 22-year-old, who took bronze in the 50m event earlier in the week, set a new European record of 55.94 seconds in the 100m final in Copenhagen.

It is Peaty’s first major title in a short-course competition and follows a silver medal for team-mate Ben Proud in the 50m freestyle event on Friday.

Short-course competitions take place over 25m rather than 50m.
