Tori Bowie beat Marie-Josee Ta Lou to IAAF World Championships 100 metres gold by one hundredth of a second, while Olympic champion Elaine Thompson could only finish fifth.

Bowie finished second to Thompson at Rio 2016 but denied the Jamaican her first medal at the Worlds here, clocking a season's best time of 10.85 seconds to take gold from Ta Lou by just 0.01secs.

Dafne Schippers - silver medallist two years ago in Beijing - crossed in 10.96s to beat Murielle Ahoure to the bronze.
