Great Britain's Adam Gemili continues to rub shoulders with the best in world sprinting after another third place at the IAAF Diamond League in Oslo.

Gemili repeated his performance from last week in Rome as he clocked 10.11 seconds to finish behind Trinidad's Richard Thompson and France's Jimmy Vicaut at the Bislett Games.

Richard Kilty, the world 60m indoor champion, and Daniel Talbot finished seventh and eighth - with this month's 100m at the British Championships in Birmingham promising to be memorable, with new sub-ten second star Chijindu Ujah, James Dasaolu and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey also in the mix.

Former world junior champion Jodie Williams finished second behind 2012 Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix over 200m.

Asha Philip and Williams were fifth and sixth respectively in the 100m and British team-mate Eilidh Child was third in the women's 400m hurdles in 55.33 secs.

Meanwhile, teenager Jess Judd clocked a personal best 1:59.77 to finish third behind world champion Eunice Jepkoech Sum in the 800m.

"My season didn't start well and I fractured my back in the winter so I can't believe it," she said. "It's been a stressful time but everyone had faith in me."

Former world champion Phillips Idowu finished eighth in the triple jump, producing a best leap of 16.30 metres in the first round and fouling his last three attempts.

And Shara Proctor declared herself satisfied with a best effort of 6.78m to finish second in the women's long jump.
