Rhys Williams shows pride of Lions in beating Felix Sanchez

It just so happened that the first person Rhys Williams encountered as he left the track in the Alexander Stadium yesterday was wearing an old-style cotton British & Irish Lions jersey. "Nice shirt," the resurgent 400m hurdler said, fresh from taking the scalps of the reigning world-title holder (his Welsh compatriot Dai Greene) and Olympic champion (Felix Sanchez) as runner-up to London 2012 silver medallist Javier Culson in the Sainsbury's British Grand Prix. The 29-year-old should know. His celebrated father wore one with distinction.
