Britain's Adam Peaty continued his dominant play in men's breaststroke as he broke 50m world record in heats at the 17th FINA World Championships here on Tuesday, while Chinese swimmer star Sun Yang secured a final spot in men's 800m freestyle with a fifth finish in heats.

Peaty has renewed 100m breaststroke championships record twice in the Hungarian capital, in semi-finals and final respectively, en route to defending the event title on Monday.

One day later, he clocked 26.10 seconds to better previous world record of 26.42 seconds, also set by him two years ago in Kazan.

"It's 10 a.m., and it's quite early for a world record," commented Peaty.
