Great Britain's Lisa Dobriskey and Laura Weightman failed to claim a medal from tonight's women's 1,500m final.

Dobriskey finished 10th, while 21-year-old Weightman eventually ended up in 11th spot.

Asli Cakir Alptekin won the race in a time of 4:10.23, claiming Turkey's first ever gold Olympic athletics gold medal in the process.

Her compatriot Gamze Bulut won silver, while Maryam Yusuf Jamal of Bahrain took the bronze.
