GLASGOW (Reuters) - Adam Peaty's world 100 metres breaststroke record, set at the European Championships on Saturday, has been amended after problems with the race-timing equipment came to light, officials said on Sunday.

The time, revised from 57.00 seconds to 57.10, is still faster than Peaty's previous record of 57.13 set at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, sparing organisers the embarrassment of having to wipe the 23-year-old Briton's new mark from the record books.
