Marathon runner Callum Hawkins has become the first British athlete to be selected for next summer's World Championships in London.
The Scot, 24, who finished an impressive ninth at the Rio Olympics in only his third marathon race, has been confirmed by British Athletics as the first member of its team for August's showpiece.
British Athletics performance director Neil Black said: "We are delighted to confirm Callum's selection for London.

Black added that the British team for the London World Championships would be "large and competitive".
