Ohuruogu wins gold in 400m thriller

Ohuruogu, 29, won the women's prize for a third time after claiming the 400m title at the same event in Moscow.

Hannah Cockroft and Richard Whitehead took the Paralympics honours.

Cockcroft won the T34 100m by over a second and the 200m by almost two seconds in July's IPC World Athletics Championships, with Whitehead taking gold in the T42 200m final in Lyon.

Double Olympic gold medallist Farah finished ahead of sprinters Adam Gemili and James Dasaolu, while Ohuruogu edged British 400m hurdles champion Perri Shakes-Drayton and 100m hurdler Tiffany Porter.
