Without naming Greenwood, it found an unnamed senior coach had used "abusive and derogatory" language towards athletes, some of them still legally children, and had created a "climate of fear".

The claims first surfaced last December, the same month Greenwood received his UK Coaching award, and were referred to swimming's national governing body by the British Athletes Commission (BAC), which represents the interests of Olympians and Paralympians.

Para-swimming was ParalympicsGB's most successful sport at the Rio 2016 Games, winning 47 medals including 16 golds, but British Swimming has now removed a story about Greenwood's coaching award from its website.

A second member of staff, who is still in a senior role at British Swimming, has also been disciplined for a "failure to ensure management control" and a "lack of empathy" towards athletes.

The investigation was led by two ex-police officers and involved interviews with 13 athletes, many of whom are still members of the British squad, and 10 members of staff.

In a statement, UK Coaching said it has the "highest regard for the welfare of both athlete and coach and considers this an absolute priority".

It pointed to its code of practice for sports coaches as an example of its work, saying coaches who abide by the code "will create healthy, positive environments for participants to thrive in".

This year's awards ceremony will be held in London on November 30 and the organisation has added David Lavalle, the first professor of duty of care in sport, to its judging panel and the BAC will also be consulted "to ensure the athletes' voice is heard".

UK Coaching chief executive Mark Gannon said: "Coaching can transform lives and the benefits go much wider than learning or honing skills in sport and physical activity.

"The need for coaches to understand and act on their responsibilities is vital, as is the need to promote participation for fun and enjoyment.

"We will continue to promote the hugely positive benefits the vast majority of coaches deliver to millions of people across the UK."
