Tom Dean powered to the gold medal in the men’s 200m freestyle at the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday, heading a British one-two with Duncan Scott taking silver.
Dean won in a time of 1:44.22 with Scott was just four hundredths of a second behind him.
Fernando Scheffer of Brazil took bronze.
South Korea’s Hwang Sun-woo was under the world record time at the 100m mark but faded badly, ending up seventh, as the British pair powered towards a spectacular finish.
The 21-year-old Dean’s gold was Britain’s second in the Tokyo pool after Adam Peaty’s success in the 100m breaststroke on Monday.
“I knew it was going to be a dogfight, I didn’t know how people were going to swim it, just race the race and that’s how it is,” said a delighted Dean.
Scott was narrowly above Dean in the rankings coming into the Games and qualified fastest, but was delighted for his team mate.
