Greene will be 2012 'poster boy' - Akabusi

Kriss Akabusi has told BBC Sport's Tim Love that Dai Greene is his "heir apparent" after the Welshman stormed to 400m hurdles victory, winning Britain's first gold at the World Athletics Championships.

The Olympic bronze medallist adds that he would love to see Greene beat his British 400m hurdles record at the London Olympic Games, but thinks he may do so earlier.

Akabusi set his record of 47.82 seconds at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, while Greene managed a time of 48.26 seconds in Daegu, South Korea.
