Shara Proctor and Tiffany Porter both emerged victorious as Usain Bolt delivered on his promise at the IAAF Diamond League in Oslo.

Six-time Olympic champion Bolt rebounded in style from his recent defeat to Justin Gatlin over 100m to crush his rivals in the 200m, clocking a world leading and meeting record 19.79 seconds.

But British athletes Proctor and Porter were also victorious in the women's long jump and 100m hurdles.

Proctor secured her win with a 6.89 metre first round leap - six centimetres off her national record - while Porter clocked 12.76 secs to beat an all-European field.

James Ellington was third behind Bolt in 20.55 secs while British team-mates David Bolarinwa and Daniel Talbot came home fifth and sixth.

Perri Shakes Drayton looked confident in a competitive 400m field, finishing second to Zuzana Hejnova in a season's best 54.03 secs.

Elsewhere, Nigel Levine posted a solid 45.63 sec time to finish third in the 400m won by Saudi Arabia's Youssef Ahmed Masrahi. Former Olympic finalist Martyn Rooney finished sixth.
