USA's sprinter Justin Gatlin stormed to a lifetime best over 100m at the Diamond League opener in Doha on Friday night.

Twice for doping banned Gatlin won Diamond League's most popular race in a new world leading and personal best mark of 9.74 seconds.

"It was a magical night for me," Gatlin said. "Doha is a great place for me and with that performance I put out a statement."

Michael Rodgers (USA) crossed the line in second in 9.93 seconds with  Trinidad and Tobago sprinter Keston Bledman was third in 10.01.
