Nineteen-year-old Adam** **Gemili wants to emulate Usain Bolt by becoming a global sprint champion after giving another exciting glimpse of his huge potential in the 200 metres final at the World Championships in Moscow.

Gemili might have been at Scunthorpe's Glanford Park rather than the Luzhniki Stadium today, turning out for Dagenham & Redbridge in League Two, had he stuck with the beautiful game.

Instead he was the first Briton in a world 200m final for 10 years, running the second fastest time of his life, 20.08 seconds, to come home fifth. Bolt, unsurprisingly, won the gold in 19.66secs.

He mouthed 'wow' when he was introduced to the crowd before the race, looking around the stadium with his customary wide smile on his face.
