Britain's 200m world champion Dina Asher-Smith set a new world record while equalling her personal best in the 60m event, as she clocked 7.08 seconds at the World Indoor Athletics Tour in Karlsruhe, Germany, on Friday. This was her first race for well over a year and her first indoor race in three years.

Less than six months before the Tokyo Olympics, Asher-Smith dominated the field.

Her latest international appearance was at the 2019 World Championships in Doha, where she won women's 200m in the finals.

In the build-up, Asher-Smith, 25, said she is planning a "genuine attack" on the indoor season and could run at the European Indoor Championships in Turon, Poland, from March 5 to 7.

The British sprinter is set to race in Duesseldorf on Sunday and Lievin on February 9.
