The regining champion continued his dominance in the event by easing to a time of 57.56s in his opening heat. Sporting a new moustache, the world record holder looked comfortable as he set the fastest time so far, with only Dutch swimmer Arno Kamminga dipping under 58 seconds alongside him. James Wilby also made the semis, while Max Litchfield and Aimee Willmott reached finals of the 400m medley.

Elsewhere, there was a big shock in the men's 400m individual medley, where Japanese home favourite and world champion Daiya Seto missed out on Sunday’s final by only posting the ninth fastest time. Britain’s Max Litchfield did make it through.
Aimee Willmott, who will retire after the Games, also qualified for the final of the women’s equivalent in the second fastest time.
