Olympics swimming hero Adam Peaty shows off impressive Superman push-ups that helped him win gold at Rio 2016

The 21-year-old - who won Britain's first medal of the Rio Olympics - shows off the explosive power in his arms during training session
British Olympics swimming hero Adam Peaty has shown off his incredible power press-up skills in this brilliant Instagram post.

The 21-year-old from Uttoxeter won Britain's first medal of the Rio Olympics, ending a 28-year wait for a Great Britain men's swimming gold in the process.

He showed off the explosive power in his arms in the video, which was shot as he trained ahead of the Rio Games.

Filmed with a Union flag in the background, Peaty pushes himself off the ground in slow motion before clapping in midair.
Not since Adrian Moorhouse in 1988 had a British male won an Olympic swimming title and Peaty won the same 100 metres breaststroke race in a world record of 57.13 seconds and by more than 1.5secs.

But Peaty, who has double Olympic champion and four-time medallist Rebecca Adlington as a mentor and his City of Derby coach Mel Marshall to guide him, will not be resting on his laurels.

He was already looking forward to making improvements on the peerless performance when he returns to training at Repton School and Loughborough University after a well-earned break.

Peaty, who competes in the 4x100m medley relay on Friday, said: "Yes, I'm ready. I've got one of the best mentors in the world in Mel. She's been there and done it all.

"And I speak to Becky quite a lot. She's been there and done it all.

"But I'm not going to settle for this. I'm going to push forwards.
