Great Britain's Michael Jamieson took silver in the 100m breaststroke to add to his 200m gold at the 2013 World Cup series in Dubai.

Jamieson trailed Australia's Kenneth To by 0.41 seconds.

Sophie Allen also won silver in the women's 200m breaststroke, and finished fourth and seventh respectively in the 200m butterfly and 50m breaststroke finals.

On the opening day, Scotland's Jamieson had won the 200m breaststroke final in two minutes 6.68 seconds.

Fran Halsall took fourth place in the 50m freestyle, being pipped to bronze by Denmark's Jeanette Ottesen.

South Africa's Olympic champion Chad le Clos narrowly failed to set a new 200m butterfly world record. He swam 1:49.04 in Eindhoven earlier this year, but could only clock 1:49.07 this time around.

Georgia Davies finished fifth in the 50m backstroke, while Allen sixth in the 100m breaststroke and Liam Tancock eighth in the 100m backstroke.
