    Britain's Adam Peaty gives a thumb-up after setting a new world record in a men's 100-meter breaststroke heat during the swimming competitions at the 2016 Summer Olympics on Aug. 6, 2016, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    Every athlete should have a fan as devoted as #OlympicNan.

    Mavis Williams, the grandmother of British swimmer Adam Peaty has become a champion tweeter, gushing about his achievements.

    With a Twitter biography that describes herself as "Proud Nan to a World Champion Breaststroker," she's quickly gaining followers who use the word "adorable" to describe her passion for Peaty. 

    "What race oooo I'm so proud he's a gladiator well done," his granny tweeted when he broke the world record in the 100 meter breaststroke. Williams stamped her tweet with the Union Jack. 

    Williams told the BBC on Sunday that she was alone during the race and that she "screamed for him. But my neighbor didn't mind." 

    She said "since I have been going to watch Adam it's given me a new life."
