Adam Peaty posted a championship record of 57.75 seconds in Sunday night's semi-final

Bronze went to the 2013 champion Cameron Van Der Burgh, who clocked a time of 26.60secs, having earlier had suggested Peaty had "shown his cards" by breaking the world record in the previous preliminaries that morning.

Elsewhere on the fourth evening of finals in Hungary, World record holder Federica Pellegrini produced a stunning swim to beat American golden girl Katie Ledecky in the women's 200m freestyle final.

Australia's Emma McKeon (56.18) grabbed the silver and Kelsi Worrell of the US (56.37) settled for bronze.

"That world record was two years old, so it was kind of due another push on". Just lining it all up beforehand and making sure I can get everywhere I need to go pretty quickly.

Since he won his first worldwide title at the Commonwealth Games exactly three years ago, Peaty has now accumulated 16 golds on the world stage.

Peaty now holds the Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth 100m breaststroke titles and the world record time; he also holds the World and European 50m breaststroke titles, and world record time.

But Peaty's haul was matched in equally sensational fashion on the second night of racing at the Duna Arena as Ben Proud thundered his way to a first global title in the 50m butterfly gold. "I don't want to jeopardise anything but I want to branch out".

In his semi-final he was a little bit lower in the water as he set his world record. Not for long. In the last of nine heats and before the chime of 10am was heard, the 22-year-old from Uttoxeter left his blocks, tanked it through a timewarp and left the global standard at 26.10. Honestly. I was just going out there just to qualify for the semis.

"I just dived in tonight and was like "I feel good".

Australia's Mack Horton, the Olympic 400m champion who lost Sunday's final to Sun, dropped out of the 800m to focus on Saturday's 1500m freestyle heats.

"World records in heats don't win finals", said the South African.

"I'm trying to give it back home, get the young ones swimming, get the young ones racing and teach them to have no fear at all".

"It makes it official that I'm a 25-point swimmer now so that's good", said Peaty when asked if he finished feeling satisfied.
