Elaine Thompson-Herah takes gold as Jamaica claim all three medals in the women's 100m final.

Elaine Thompson-Herah has successfully defended her women's 100m Olympics title as Jamaica claimed a 1-2-3 in Tokyo.

The 29-year-old set a new Olympic record time of 10.61 seconds - the second fastest in history - for the gold, with two-time former champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce having to settle for silver with an impressive 10.74 seconds.

Teammate Shericka Jackson completed the clean sweep via a new personal best of 10.76 seconds.
