British sprinter James Dasaolu is hoping to build on his performance at the World Athletics Championships.

The 25-year-old qualified for the final of the men's 100m at the Moscow event, finishing in eighth place with a time of 10.21 seconds.

"Yesterday was the first time I had run out of blocks for three weeks and I was just happy to be in the final," he told BBC Sport.

"This is my first year going under 10 seconds and hopefully I can build on this."
