Eilidh Child

Scotland's Eilidh Child has finished fifth in the final of the 400m hurdles at the World Championships in Moscow.

Child was fifth (54.86) in a race where Czech Republic's Zuzana Hejnova won gold.

"It wasn't a great race, I lost my stride on the back straight," said Child after beating fellow Briton Shakes-Drayton for the first time.

"I did feel a bit tired but I cannot complain with a fifth in the world final."
