Adam Peaty bounced back from his 100m final disappointment to win men's 50m breaststroke gold - a medal that has previously eluded him during his illustrious career.

Peaty's fourth Commonwealth gold - and seventh medal overall - completed a full set of major medals for the 27-year-old.

His eight-year unbeaten run in the 100m distance ended on Sunday and he reflected he had expected too much of himself on his comeback from a broken foot he suffered in a training accident 10 weeks ago.

But he warned his rivals he was like a cornered lion ready to “bite” back and duly claimed the only major gold medal missing from his vast collection after touching the wall first in 26.76 seconds.

Peaty said: “I’m a much happier man. I had two options this morning, I either fight or I don’t. If anyone knows me, I fight.

“That means so much. I lost my spark at the start of the week and to have it back now, this is what it’s about.

“That was the only one I hadn’t won in my career, the Commonwealth 50. So I can retire now. No, no, but I’m very happy with my progress there.”

The silver medal went to Australia's Sam Williamson with Scotland's Ross Murdoch claiming an impressive bronze.
