Great Britain's Matthew Hudson-Smith agonisingly has to settle for silver in the men's 400m at the World Athletics Championships.

Matthew Hudson-Smith has earned silver for Great Britain in the men's 400m at the World Athletics Championships.

On the back of setting a new European record in the semi-final, Hudson-Smith had aspirations to break his duck on the major stage.

However, the 28-year-old had to settle for second place after a gutsy run, with the disappointment of missing out on gold overridden by the achievement of producing one of the runs of his career while dealing with Achilles tendonitis.

Hudson-Smith led for the majority of the race, going out relentlessly hard to establish a lead at the final bend and for the following 50 metres.

Nevertheless, the chasing pack were always closing and Jamaica's Antonio Nelson ultimately overtook him with 10 metres to go, prevailing in 44.22 seconds.

Agonisingly for Great Britain's Hudson-Smith, he finished just 0.09 seconds adrift, while Quincy Hall of the USA set a PB of 44.37 to claim the bronze.

In the 200m semi-finals, Zharnel Hughes remained on course for a second medal, with the British 100m bronze medallist finishing second in his race to make the final.

Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita, the latter running a PB, progressed through to the final of the women's equivalent, as did 100m champion Sha'carri Richardson.
