Laura Muir won her first major outdoor title with a masterful display in the 1500m final at the European Championships in Berlin.

The 25-year-old made a brave break with 900 metres to go and held on to finish in four minutes 02.32 seconds.

Poland’s Sofia Ennaoui finished fast to take silver (4:03.08) and Briton Laura Weightman claimed the bronze (4:03.75).

Earlier, Great Britain’s 4x100m relay teams both qualified impressively for Sunday’s finals.
