Peacock raced against his hero South Africa's Oscar Pistorius on Thursday night and beat him convincingly in the T44 100m, charging away from the start for a victory that never looked in doubt.

Peacock crossed the line in 10.90.

Richard Browne of the USA was second, with Arnu Fourie of South Africa third and Pistorius fourth.

"Jonnie Peacock is very young in the squad. He shows the world that you can come up with proper training, having a superb coach in Dan Pfaff and cope with all the pressure that he had today.

"I think that was amazing - what more could he do."

– Peter Eriksson, UK Athletics Paralympic head coach
