Jamaica’s Usain Bolt beat Justin Gatlin to win the 200m and complete the sprint double at the World Championships in Beijing.

Defending champion Bolt, 29, won in 19.55 seconds, with American Gatlin taking silver in 19.74 in a repeat of Sunday’s 100m final.

“Bolt came here and delivered when he’s not had the best of seasons,” ex-world champion Michael Johnson told the BBC.

South Africa’s Anaso Jobodwana was third and Briton Zharnel Hughes fifth.

“I’ve had a bit of pain in my back but my physio did a great job,” said the 20-year-old Hughes.

“I got a personal best and I can’t wish for better than that. I got into the final and that’s a major achievement for me.”
