British Olympic swimming star Adam Peaty said he had been under a “huge amount of pressure” as he explained his decision to join other top athletes in taking a mental health break.

Peaty defended his men’s 100m breaststroke crown in Tokyo and also won gold in the 4x100m mixed medley relay and silver in the men’s 4x100m medley.

The 26-year-old referred to the struggles of American gymnast Simone Biles and England cricketer Ben Stokes as he expanded on his move to take time away from the pool.
