Individual champion Tori Bowie anchored the United States to victory in the women's 4x100 metres relay at the World Championships on Saturday.

U.S. athletes Aaliyah Brown, Morolake Akinosun, Allyson Felix and Tori Bowie pose with their flag as they celebrate winning the final of the women's 4x100m relay athletics event at the 2017 IAAF World Championships at the London Stadium in London on 12 August 2017. Trinidad and Tobago finished in sixth place, with Brazil in seventh place and the Netherlands in eighth place.

Melissa Bishop , the silver medalist two years ago, finished in fifth place, with Angelika Cichocka in sixth and Charlene Lipsey in seventh.

The changeover from Felix to Akinosun was clean, and the latter kept ahead of both Asher-Smith and Simone Facey, though her change over to Bowie was tight and heading into the final straight it looked as if Neita could pull off the slight upset. Britain took silver medal and Jamaica earned bronze.

Felix's gold takes her to the all-time leader in terms of world medals - one ahead of Jamaican duo Merlene Ottey and Usain Bolt.
