Dina Asher-Smith has withdrawn from the 200m at the Tokyo Olympic Games due to a hamstring injury.

The 25-year-old failed to make the final of the 100m and then decided to withdraw from the 200m due to a hamstring injury she is still recovering from.

Following her third place in the 100m semi-final heats, Asher-Smith revealed that she’d suffered an agonising hamstring tear in the final of the British Olympic trials.

Prior to the Games, the sprinter had pulled out of events in Stockholm and Gateshead, but the true extent of the injury had not been made public.
