Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won a record fifth women’s 100m World Championships title. 

Fraser-Pryce, 35, set a championship record in 10.67 seconds, finishing ahead of fellow Jamaicans Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah, who took silver and bronze on the all-Jamaican podium.

Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith finished fourth.

Surprisingly, the two-time Olympic champion’s latest world title comes 13 years after her first, which she won in Berlin in 2009.

“I feel blessed to have this talent and to continue to do it at 35, having a baby, still going, and hopefully inspiring women that they can make their own journey,” said Fraser-Pryce.

“I can’t even imagine the amount of times I’ve had setbacks and I’ve bounced back and I’m here again.

“I continue to remind myself that sometimes it’s not because you don’t have the ability but it’s the right time. It was the right time and I’m so, so grateful for the continuous support.

“This is the third one-two-three that I’ve been a part of and I’m so excited. I was able to come away with the win.”
