Client saying Another freelancer did the job while on contract

Recently, I got an offer to make a web page for a company on Upwork, The client and I agreed on 10 days to finish the job and I accepted the offer and started working on the application.

7 days after the contract started the client sent me a message telling me that another freelancer did the job and he/she no longer needs me.

Hello. One of the freelancers that wanted to do this job did the work at risk, and actually did the Dashboard for this Request as I require it
Effectively I no longer need this job done and wish to cancel the contract
My Apologies for this

I consider this to be so unprofessional. How do I respond to this?
