Duncan Scott brought home the victory with Russia having to settle for second in the wake of an incredible team performance from the Brits.

Great Britain's women had no answer to Russia in their 4x100m medley but they secured a dramatic bronze ahead of Italy.

Going into the final leg the Italians were second with Britain third but as Denmark overtook both countries Freya Anderson narrowly edged it to take the final medal.
