He shouted, shaking his fist. A gesture from the speed queen: Jamaican Shelly-Anne Fraser-Pryce wins her fifth world title in the 100m.

That gold was added to the gold she won in 2009, 2013, 2015 and 2019 and her Olympic crowns in 2008 and 2012.

On Sunday, Fraser-Pryce set a new record (at the championships) by stopping the clock in 10.67 seconds at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, USA.

She was followed by her compatriots Sherika Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Hera who won silver and bronze respectively.
