It was Wellbrock's third world title after his 10km and 1500m freestyle successes three years ago in Gwangju.

The 24-year-old had already taken silver in the 800m free and 1500m free races in the pool in Budapest last week.

World and Olympic champion Paltrinieri had to settle for his ninth individual world championship medal, adding to his 1500m victory.

Cunha, Olympic champion over 10km, won the women's race, pipping France's Aurelie Muller by 0.90sec.

It was the sixth world title for the 30-year-old Brazilian, a four-time gold medallist over 25km, who also won the 5km race in 2019.
