Olympic 100m champion Lamont Marcell Jacobs came with a withering run in the final 10 metres to take gold in the men's 60m at the World Athletics Indoor Championships in Belgrade.
Jacobs’ big rivals from America, Christian Coleman and Marvin Bracy, were faster out of the blocks - and Coleman, back in action following an 18-month ban for missed drugs tests, looked set to take the gold as he led at halfway.
Bracy, so impressive in the semi-finals, began to cut into his compatriot’s lead - but Italy’s Jacobs came over the top of both of them to claim the gold in a time of 6.41s. Coleman was given the same time as Jacobs, but the Italian's rapid finish proved the difference.

Adam Thomas of Great Britain came home in fifth in a time of 6.60s.
Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas produced a brilliant controlling run to win gold in the women’s 400m. The Olympic champion ran hard from the outside lane and was able to cross in front at the bell. Femke Bol gave chase but lost ground down the back straight on the final lap, and despite making ground in the final 60m, Miller-Uibo had enough in the tank to hold on in a time of 50.31 seconds. Stephenie Ann McPherson took the bronze.
Olympic champion Damian Warner proved he is head and shoulders above his rivals in the multi-event format by taking gold in the heptathlon. His points total of 6489 had the Canadian comfortably ahead of Simon Ehammer and Ashley Moloney.
Sandi Morris’ clearance of 4.80m was enough for the American to defend her pole vault title, with her compatriot Katie Nageotte taking silver. Tina Sutej of Slovenia grabbed the bronze medal.
