Competing in the final in Tokyo, University of Glasgow vet school graduate Laura Muir shattered her own British record for the distance to finish second behind defending champion Faith Kipyegon.

European champion
The 28-year-old Scot is a former European champion at the distance, but until now had narrowly missed out on medals at both world and Olympic level.

But the fast pace of the Olympic final clearly suited Dr Muir as she powered past world champion Sifan Hassan on to the home straight to finish comfortably in the runners-up spot.
