Swimmer Adam Peaty drops double F-BOMB live on BBC after winning Team GB’s first gold medal

British swimmer Adam Peaty made Olympic history in Tokyo today by winning gold for the second time – before emotions saw him accidentally swear twice on live TV.

The 26-year-old from Uttoxeter cruised to victory in the 100m breaststroke to defend his crown and confirm his status as Britain’s undisputed king of the pool.

Fresh-faced Peaty, who had shaved off his beard just days before the event, was unable to beat his own world record of 56.88 seconds.

But he remains unbeaten over 100m at breaststroke for the last seven years – which include his gold medal at Rio 2016. 

His enthusiasm got the better of him as he turned the air blue with his first words after securing victory.

He said: ‘It takes an athlete to be the best person on the day and who f****** wants it more. It just means the world to me.

 ‘I thought I had the best preparation but morning finals changed everything and threw that out of window.’  

He added: ‘I felt the pressure but I needed to put myself on edge.

‘You can do whatever you want in your own pool but when it comes to being out here it’s not about a time.

‘I was racing myself. It wasn’t about the time but the race.

‘I wanted it more. I know they are trying to get me but that’s where the training comes in.

‘It’s like the four minute mile – once one person does it others do.’

Peaty also thanked everyone back in Britain for supporting him in his quest for gold.

He said: ‘Thanks to the nation for being behind me for five years and my family and my beautiful boy. 

‘I knew it was going to take every bit of energy and I’m just so f****** relieved. Apologies for the swearing!’

Looking exhausted but ecstatic as he got out of the pool Peaty bowed to the crowd to acknowledge his victory.

The Briton shouted ‘come on’ to his Team GB team-mates who had come Tokyo’s Aquatics Centre to cheer him on.

Peaty came home clear of the opposition but did not come close to breaking his own record, recording a time of 57.37 seconds.

His victory is Team GB’s first gold medal at Tokyo 2020. 

Before the event new father Peaty told how he missed having his family and other supporters in the crowd.

He also admitted Tokyo ‘does not feel like an Olympics’.

He said: ‘It’s very different out there.

‘It’s very strange because you think you can come here and rely on that ‘oomph’.

‘But there’s not many people in the crowd because they’re all athletes, coaches and media, which is very different.’

Peaty beamed with joy and pride as he was awarded his Olympic gold medal. 

Peaty’s mum has told of her pride – and relief – at her son’s victory.

Caroline Peaty said in a tweet: ‘So glad that’s over, blood pressure must be through the roof lol x.

‘Our house was so quiet, we couldn’t breathe. We are beyond proud @adam_peaty.

‘Love u loads.’
