Merritt smashes 110m hurdles record

Olympic champion Aries Merritt wins the 110m hurdles at the Brussels Diamond League event in a world record time of 12.80 seconds.

The 27-year-old American says he is shocked that he "obliterated" the previous best of 12.87 seconds, set in 2008 by Cuba's Dayron Robles.

Merritt becomes the first man to run eight sub-13 second races in the same season.
