Both Great Britain men and women’s teams claimed silver in their respective 4x100m relay races at the World Athletics Championships.

Following her gold in the 200m and silver in the 100m, Dina Asher-Smith won her third medal of the games alongside teammates Asha Philip, Ashleigh Nelson, Daryll Neita for the women.

The 23-year-old becomes the first British athlete to win three medals at the same World Championships as her and her team finished second behind Jamaica.

Meanwhile, Adam Gemili, Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake also managed a second place finish behind the USA.

Running a time of 41.85, the women’s team were not quite able to catch the Jamaican team led by the fastest woman in the world Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

Speaking afterwards however, Asher-Smith praised her teammates for their efforts.

“I think we all handled the pressure between us which is testimony to how much experience we have got as a squad,” She told the BBC. “We almost ran a pb without practicing any of the changes in the warm-up area. It's been a good champs but obviously it's a team event.”

The men clocked in at 37.36 - a British record - to finish behind the Americans.

Gemili, also speaking to BBC, expressed his pride at the performance and revealed the team are looking to go one better at the Tokyo Olympics next summer.

"We were always pushing for the gold but the Americans were better than us.

"We ran a new British record. We tried our best and hopefully it was a good show for the crowd.

"Leaving with something is great and it puts a spark in us for next year."
