Tom Dean says winning Olympic gold was ‘proudest day of my life’

The swimmer has spoken about the difficulty of not having his family around him at the Tokyo Olympics – but says he’s watched the viral videos of them celebrating several times.

Tom Dean became the first British male swimmer in 113 years to win two golds at a single Olympic Games after victories in the 200m freestyle and the 4x200m freestyle with his teammates James Guy, Matt Richards and Duncan Scott (who he narrowly beat to gold in the aforementioned event).
