World 100 metre champion Justin Gatlin slumped to defeat at the Diamond League final in Zurich on Friday.

The American was beaten into fourth place in 10.04sec with Britain’s Chijindu Ujah taking victory in 9.97sec.

Ujah, part of Britain’s 4x100m relay title-winning squad at the world championships, finished ahead of Ivory Coast’s Ben Youssef Meite (9.97sec) with Ronnie Baker of the US completing the podium (10.01sec).

Bahamas’ Shaunae Miller-Uibo stunned world champion Dafne Schippers and Olympic gold medallist Elaine Thompson to win the women’s 200m.
