Christine Mboma produced a powerful late surge to edge out Shericka Jackson in a star-studded women’s 200m race at the Brussels Diamond League on Friday.

Namibia’s Mboma clocked 21.84s to finish ahead of Jackson (21.95s) and Britain’s world champion Dina Asher-Smith (22.04s).

American Sha’Carri Richardson was fourth with a time of 22.45s.

Double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah did not race after dropping out with an Achilles injury.

Meanwhile, Sweden’s Armand Duplantis won the pole vault in comfortable fashion with a 6.05m leap. However, the Olympic champion, 21, failed to break his own world record after three missed attempts at 6.19m. (BBC)
