Sprinter Adam Gemili has been restored to the top level Olympic podium funding programme by British Athletics.

The 26-year-old was downgraded to relay funding last winter but has been moved back up after the World Championships earlier this year.

He won silver in the 4x100m relay and was fourth in the 200m final in Doha.

Tom Bosworth (race walker), Abigail Irozuru (long jump) and Jake Wightman (1,500m) have also been added to the Olympic podium funding category.

Morgan Lake (high jump) has dropped to the second tier of funding, while Shara Proctor (long jump) has not been included.

The funding programme is UK Sport's National Lottery initiative and British Athletics said membership for next year "is based upon an athletes' potential to win a medal at Tokyo 2020 or Paris 2024".
