British sprinter Christian Malcolm loses out in the semi-finals of the men's 200m.

Team GB's Christian Malcolm missed out on a place in the final of the 200m at the Olympic Games in London this evening.

The 33-year-old appeared to struggle with the transition from the bend to the home straight and as a result found himself in fifth.

He sprinted hard down in the remaining few metres to secure third place, but his time of 20.51s was not enough to see him advance as a fastest loser.

Churandy Martina of the Netherlands won the race in 20.17s, while Jamaica's Warren Weir finished in second.
