Before taking up athletics, Adam Gemili was a promising footballer, playing for non-league Thurrock as well as spending time in the youth academy at Chelsea.

However such was his speed on the pitch that he switched to sprinting in 2012, picking up a silver medal at the Olympic trials, winning world junior 100m gold and then making his Olympic Games debut at London 2012, reaching the semi-finals.

He ran the second fastest time ever by a Briton over the 200m when he qualified for the 2013 World Championships while in 2014 he took silver in the 100m at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Gemili has not stopped there though, and ran his first legal sub-ten second race at the Diamond League in Birmingham in May 2015, clocking 9.97 seconds.
