Sunderland team-mate Matthew Wylie posted a S9 British record of 58.12sec to win silver.

Craig said: “I’m extremely happy, it’s the first time under the minute for me but what’s even more special is that both myself and my training partner, Matthew Wylie, broke British recordst.

“I knew that I had a swim like that in me.”
