Make it a double: Ledecky begins worlds with a pair of golds

Ledecky's winning time was 15 minutes and 31.82 seconds - more than six seconds off her world-record pace from the championships in Kazan two years ago, but she clearly conserving energy for her second race of the night.

Phelps was the last to leave pool deck as he waved an emotional goodbye to a boisterous crowd after helping the gold in the men's 4x100 meters medley relay.

Canadian Xu Jiayu followed his Olympic silver medal with a gold in the 100m backstroke, edging 2012 Olympic champion Matt Grevers by.04. "I've worked toward this meet all year". But I'm relaxed after the first swim and I will prepare for the upcoming events without anxiety.

He has now won the 400m world title at each of the last three championships after his Barcelona 2013 and Kazan 2015 triumphs. "I know when I leave, it will be in good hands".

In the men's 100m backstroke heats, both the Olympic champion, Ryan Murphy of the United States, and Australia's Mitch Larkin, the defending world champion made it through to the evening's semis.
