Dina Asher-Smith suffered a broken foot in her final training session before the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix and has been forced to pull out of Saturday's event.

The 21-year-old sprinter, who won Olympic bronze as part of Britain's 4x100m women's relay team at Rio 2016, said she was "gutted" to miss out.

"What are the odds!" she tweeted.external-link

"Last session before the Grand Prix, last reactive jump, and I land awkwardly on my foot and fracture it."

She added: "So upset and frustrated but it was a freak accident, one of those unavoidable things in life I guess. Comeback starts now."
