Jarryd Dunn won the men's 400m with a personal best of 45.09, while Eilidh Child won the women's 400m hurdles and Asha Phillip the women's 100m.

Home nation Russia lead the rankings before Sunday's final day.

Germany are in second, with France third, nine points clear of Great Britain, who lead fifth-placed Poland by 13.5 points.

Victory in the men's relay, the last event of the day, meant Great Britain picked up a maximum 12 points, but there was disappointment with an 11th-place finish in the women's race after two poor changeovers.
