Great Britain’s Max Litchfield finished fourth in the final of the 400m individual medley at the World Swimming Championships in Budapest.

Litchfield finished in a time of four minutes 9.6 seconds, missing out on a medal by less than half a second.

America’s Chase Kalisz took gold, setting a new championship record with a time of 4mins 5.9secs.

Hungary’s David Verraszto claimed the silver medal, as Daiya Seto of Japan took the bronze.

“What can you do?” said Litchfield. “That last 25 metres was the hardest of my life, but you can’t control other people and I have to be really pleased with the time.

“I’ve been progressing for the last three to four years and there’s been a massive drop in my times, but I can’t do anything about that [result] and it’s just a matter of going away and working on more things.”
