Asher-Smith second in Zurich 200m in season's best time

Britain's triple European sprint champion Dina Asher-Smith recorded a season's best time in the women's 200m Diamond League final in Zurich.

Asher-Smith clocked 22.08 seconds behind Shaunae Miller-Uibo, but finished ahead of Olympic champion Elaine Thompson who finished third in 22.44secs.

Miller-Uibo, the Olympic 400m champion, beat a strong field in 21.74secs.

Meanwhile, Adam Gemili finished seventh in a 100m final won by Noah Lyles.

Gemili finished in 10.15secs - the same time as fellow Briton Zharnel Hughes.

American Lyles has announced he will focus on the 200m at next month's World Championships as he aims to break Usain Bolt's record, but he impressed in a time of 9.98secs, beating a field which included current 100m world champion Justin Gatlin.

US runner Gatlin came fourth behind China's Xie Zhenye and Jamaican Yohan Blake.

The meeting also saw Norway's world champion Karsten Warholm run the second-fastest time in history in the men's 400m hurdles.

His time of 46.92secs was just 0.14 seconds off American Kevin Young's world record of 46.78, set in 1992.

Britain's Laviai Nielsen came fifth in the 400m, Jemma Reekie finished 11th and Eilish McColgan 12th in the 1500m and Andrew Butchart was 11th in the 5,000m.

The Diamond League finals are split into two meetings, with 16 trophies to be handed out in Brussels on 6 September.

Highlights from Zurich will be shown on BBC One on Saturday, 31 August, and repeated on the Red Button.
