TEENAGE swimming sensation James Guy, who made history by becoming the first Briton to win the world 200m freestyle gold medal at the World Championships in Russia earlier in August, is pictured spending a few days relaxing on the Costa del Sol.

James, aged 19, set a new UK record and also picked up a silver medal for the 400m freestyle as well as anchoring the British 800m freestyle relay team which triumphantly won gold. He showed off his medals poolside at CLC Club La Costa World, where he was staying with his parents, Andy and Cath, and 15-year-old brother Luke.

In becoming the first Briton ever to take the 200m gold he beat Olympic silver medallist Sun Yang of China by a breathtaking six hundredths of a second and pushed world record holder Paul Biedermann of Germany and US Olympic star Ryan Lochte into third and fourth places respectively.

James, who lives in Glastonbury with his family, now has his sights firmly fixed on the Team GB Olympic swimming team which will head to Rio de Janeiro next summer.
