Coming just 13 months after giving birth to her son, it is truly a remarkable athletic feat for the Jamaican. The double Olympic champion made the characteristic flash-like start and was already clear of the pack by 30 metres. She then simply accelerated from the opposition to stop the clock at 10.71, 0.01 short of her personal best and exactly what she ran at for her second world title in Moscow.

Great Britain managed their first medal in this event in World Championship history as Dina Asher-Smith dropped 0.02 off her national record to claim silver in 10.83 while Marie Josee Ta-Lou of Ivory Coast claimed the bronze in 10.90 in addition to the silver she banked at the 2017 edition of the championship.
