Adam Peaty appeared to break the clock when he thundered into the wall at the end of his semi-final of the 50m breaststroke. When the world champion and record holder stopped racing in what looked close to his global-standard pace of 26.42, the clock did not, running to 34sec before timekeepers flicked a switch. Slow-hand clapping and a 10-minute delay followed before Peaty’s time flashed up: 26.66sec, 4th best ever.
