England's Katarina Johnson-Thompson is out of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow because of a foot injury.

The 21-year-old from Liverpool was advised by doctors to pull out, after a "stress reaction" in her foot.

Katarina posted the highest heptathlon score of the year with a personal-best 6,682 points last month.

She said: "The Commonwealths was a key target for me this year. I was feeling so good in my preparation up until this week so this is a real blow."

Her personal best score last month means only Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill (6,955 points) and 2000 Olympic champion Denise Lewis (6,831) have scored better than Katarina in the British all-time list.
