Kenya’s Emmanuel Korir has won the men’s 800m final, leading home a Kenyan 1-2 in 1:45.06.
The 26-year-old athlete, who is the sixth-fastest 800m runner of all time, stormed to the front to take an impressive gold ahead of teammate Ferguson Rotich.
The bronze medal went to Poland’s Patryk Dobek who finished the race in 1:45.39.
However, there was disappointment for Botswana’s Nijel Amos – the fastest man in the world this year over 800m – who finished eighth in 1:46.41.
There was going to be a new gold medallist in the 800m, after double Olympic champion and world record holder David Rudisha withdrew from contention due to injury in May.
