The US superstar Michael Phelps has atoned for his shock loss in the 200 freestyle with victory in the 200 butterfly in world record time on day four at the world swimming championships in Rome.

Phelps record has been among four more one of which was set in the heats of the womens 200 metres butterfly.

South Africa's Cameron van der Burgh broke his own world record to take gold in the men's 50 metres breaststroke.
