Jamaica's Elaine Thompson-Herah has become the second-fastest woman in history as she beat fellow Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce to retain her Olympic 100 metres title.

The 29-year-old ran 10.61 seconds, a new Olympic record and just 0.12 seconds short of the world record set by the US' Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988.

Shericka Jackson completed a Jamaican one-two-three in Tokyo with a time of 10.76, 0.02 behind Fraser-Pryce.
