Russia finished top of the medals table as the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Swimming World Championships drew to a close at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow tonight but there was no doubt the individual star of the event was Brazil's Daniel Dias. 

Dias won his seventh gold medal of the Championships which, if he were a country, would have put him in the top ten overall.

It was a hugely encouraging performance for the 27-year-old Dias a year before he is set to be one of the faces of next year's Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. 

Dias' win in the men's S5 100 metres freestyle tonight was Dias' 24th World Championships gold and completed a full-house of titles across all seven days of competition in the Scottish city. 

As well as leaving Glasgow as the most decorated athlete, Dias also added a Championships record with a time of 1min 08.85sec.

America's Roy Perkins took the silver medal and Britain's Andrew Mullen the bronze.

There were another four world records set on the final day of competition, to bring the total number to 38.

Belarusian Ihar Boki made a good claim to have had a successful Championships as Dias, setting his fifth world record and winning his sixth gold medal, clocking 54.44sec in the S13 100m butterfly to finish ahead of Russia's Roman Makarov and Australia's Timothy Antalfy and Azerbaijan's Dzmitry Salei, who tied for the bronze medal. 

The 21-year now has won a total of 16 World Championships titles to go along with the five Paralympic gold medals he claimed at London 2012. 

Ukraine's Yelyzaveta Mereshko broke the women's S6 100m freestyle twice in one day, setting a new mark in the heats and then lowering it to 1:12.21 in the final.

It was Mereshko's third gold medal of the competition, with team-mate Viktoriia Savtsova taking silver.

Australian Tiffany Thomas Kane set a new Oceania record of 1:15.05, also for a second time in less than 12 hours, to take bronze.

The world record was also broken twice in the S14 100m backstroke. 

First, South Korea's Inkook Lee swam 59.88 in the heats before Russia's Viacheslav Emeliantsev lowered it to 59.26 in the final. 

Lee had to settle for the silver medal ahead of Dutch swimmer Marc Evers.
