British Olympic gold medalist Adam Peaty had some fans in stitches after he dropped a number of F-bombs during an emotional post-race press conference at the Tokyo Olympics.

Peaty was strong favourite heading into the final considering he is the first man in history to break both the 58 and 57 second mark in the 100m breaststroke.

And the formidable swimmer delivered with the fifth-fastest time in history, 57.37, to become the first British male to defend an Olympic gold.

In a remarkable achievement, Peaty now holds the top 15 times ever recorded in the 100m breaststroke.

With another gold medal to show for five years of work leading up to the Tokyo Olympics, Peaty was overflowing with emotion.

And this showed in an interview with the BBC after the race.

"I haven't felt this good since 2016!" he said.

"It’s about who f***ing wants it more... I'm just so f***ing relieved," he added.

After the presenter ignored the swear words, he went on to praise his team.

"Sorry about the swearing, I'm very emotional," he finished.
