Dina Asher-Smith finished third behind 100-metre Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah at the Paris Diamond League.

Britain’s Asher-Smith, back in action after a hamstring injury ruined her Olympic bid, clocked 11.06 seconds.

Jamaican Thompson-Herah is still looking to beat Florence Griffith-Joyner’s 1988 world record after winning in 10.72secs.

She had run the second fastest 100m of all time last weekend in 10.54secs.

Thompson-Herah’s compatriot Shericka Jackson was second in 10.97secs while Britain’s Daryll Neita, who made the final in Tokyo was sixth in 11.12secs.
