Olivia Breen capped her IPC World Championships with a gold medal and a world record in the relay.

The City of Portsmouth talent teamed up with Maria Lyle, Georgie Hermitage and Sophie Hahn in the T35-38 4x100m relay.

But it was a superb team effort as the quartet clocked a new world record of 52.22 seconds to beat Russia (53.18) into second place.
