Jamaica's Usain Bolt moves a step closer to doubling up his 100m Olympic gold by advancing through to the final of the 200m.

Defending champion Usain Bolt progressed through to the final of the men's 200m with a victory in tonight's semi-final inside the Olympic Stadium in London.

Having got off to a good start, the 25-year-old eased himself around the bend before going on to take the lead heading down the home straight.

He eventually crossed the line in 20.18s, which was slower a time than his training partner Yohan Blake produced in the previous semi-final.

South Africa's Anaso Jobodwana ran a personal best time of 20.27s to take the second qualifying slot.
