Dina Asher-Smith took the headlines at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting after emerging victorious in her first 100m outing of the season.
She shrugged off the challenge from Tokyo bronze medallist Shericka Jackson in a tense last 20 metres to secure the victory in 11.11 seconds. Meanwhile, fellow Brit Daryll Neita came third with a time of 11.14.
It was the first of two honours in a superb day for the 26-year-old, who joined Neita to give Great Britain a win in the women’s 4x100m.
