Dina Asher-Smith took the headlines at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting after emerging victorious in her first 100m outing of the season.

She shrugged off the challenge from Tokyo bronze medallist Shericka Jackson in a tense last 20 metres to secure the victory in 11.11 seconds.

Meanwhile, fellow Brit Daryll Neita came third with a time of 11.14.

It was the first of two honours in a superb day for the 26-year-old from Orpington, who joined Neita to give Great Britain a win in the women’s 4x100m.

“It was good for my first 100m of the season,” Dina said.

“I could have done a few things differently if I’m being picky but I’m very happy with the time and to win in this temperature and against this kind of field.

“We’re targeting the World Championships but also to perform at all three championships this summer, so you have to ease into it.

“I will take that for an opener although I’m sure my coach will come to me with about a million and one corrections on Monday!”
