Peacock ran the race in a time of 10.9 seconds, a new Paralympioc record. Richard Browne won the silver medal and Arnu Fouri picked up the bronze.
At the start of the race Peacock kissed his grandfather's St Christopher's medal he wears around his neck. He than got off to a great start and continued to ease away from the rest of the field. Peacock's hero, Pistorius, came in fourth.
Speaking after the race Peacock said: "It’s absolutely surreal. This Games is going to be such a huge legacy and it is great to be a part of that."
Peacock, the world record holder in the T44 100m, qualified in the heats yesterday in the fastest time with his sporting hero, Pistorius, qualifying in the second fastest.
