Team England's para swimmer Tom Hamer has taken gold in the pool on the first day of the 21st Commonwealth Games.

And not only that - he has set a world record in the process, with an incredible time of 1:55:88 in the Men's S14 200m freestyle.

He beat Liam Schluter and Dan Fox from Australia, who came in second and third, to secure the top spot on the podium.

Congratulations, Tom!
