Team GB sprint hopeful Zharnel Hughes runs the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, close in the 200 metres at the Diamond League meeting in New York on 13 June.
The Jamaican world record holder clocked 20.29 seconds, edging out 19-year-old Hughes, who has said he is targeting the 2016 Rio Olympics after switching allegiance to compete for Team GB.
Hughes was born on the British overseas territory of Anguilla, but has held a British passport since birth and broke Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake's 100m junior record with a time of 10.12 seconds in March 2014.
