TOM DEAN sent his friends and family in Maidenhead back home into party mode at 3am after his historic Olympic gold medal triumph.

The 21-year-old led a Team GB one-two to win a brilliant 200m men's freestyle at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.

He and Scotland's Duncan Scott pulled off Britain's first gold and silver haul in a swimming event in 113 years.
