Earlier in the week the reigning 800m Olympic champion won bronze in the 1,500m, her first major final in that longer event.

Semenya now has three World Championships golds to go with her two Olympic winner’s medals.

Semenya shrugged aside ongoing criticism and debate over her gender to sprint to victory in a new personal best time.
