Dina-Asher Smith became the first British woman to win a major global sprint title as she stormed to victory in 200m at the World Championships.

The 23-year-old, who won 100m silver, was the outstanding favourite and outclassed the field to take gold in a British record of 21.88 seconds.

Brittany Brown took silver (22.22) and Swiss Mujinga Kambundji bronze (22.51).

She is also the first Briton to win a world or Olympic sprint title since Linford Christie at Stuttgart 1993.
