Fraser-Pryce: Victorious in Moscow
Double Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce sped to her second World Championship 100m gold with an imperious performance in Moscow.
The 26-year-old Jamaican always looked the most likely winner having burst out of the blocks and was comfortably ahead of her rivals to clinch the big prize in 10.71 seconds.
Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast was visibly delighted to edge silver in a blanket finish behind Fraser-Pryce while the experienced American Carmelita Jeter claimed bronze.
Elsewhere, there was a surprise winner of the men's pole vault in German wonderkid Raphael Holzdeppe, who cleared 5.89m to get the better of silver medalist Renaud Lavillenie of France.
Valerie Adams continued her domination of the women's shot put as her effort of 20.88m was enough to hold off Christina Schwanitz and become the first woman to win four successive world titles.
Great British hope William Sharman ran a valiant fifth in the final of the 110m hurdles, which was won by David Oliver of the USA, while Poland's Pawel Fajdek out-threw his rivals to claim gold in the men's hammer.
