• Diamond League: America's Noah Lyles wins 200m in style in Paris

American Noah Lyles posted another impressive 200m time to take victory in Saturday's Diamond League meeting in Paris.

The 22-year-old, who set a world-leading time in Lausanne last month, finished in 19.65 seconds in Stade Charlety.

Turkey's world and European champion Ramil Guliyev came second in a time of 20.01.

Jamaica's double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson won the women's 100m.

Thompson took first place in the women's 100m sprint in a time of 10.98, ahead of Ivorian Marie-Josee Ta Lou (11.13) and Dutch sprinter Dafne Schippers (11.15).

"It was a hard race," Thompson admitted. "It's still five weeks to Doha so it's all preparation at this stage.

"I'm not at 100% yet because it's all about the World Championships.

"It's very important to put races like this in because it was a strong field so to get the victory is great."
