Great Britain's Martyn Rooney misses out on a place in the final of the men's 400m final.

Martyn Rooney became the third British athlete to miss out on qualification for the men's 400m final this evening.

The 25-year-old was in contention for a top two finish coming into the home straight, having run a conservative opening 300m.

However, he appeared to tighten up in the closing stages and fell back down the field, eventually ending up fifth.

Eighteen-year-old Luguelin Santos claimed first place, while Kevin Borlee took second spot.

Brits Nigel Levine and Conrad Williams also suffered a similar fates to their compatriot Rooney earlier today.
