Genzebe Dibaba sets a new world record for the women's 1500m in Monaco.

Ethiopian runner Genzebe Dibaba has broken the world record in the women's 1500m at the Diamond League meeting in Monaco.

The 24-year-old recorded a time of 3:50.07 to beat the existing record of 3:50.46 held by China's Qu Yunxia.
