Olympic champion Greg Rutherford claimed his second Diamond League title in five days at the Bislett Games in Oslo.

Rutherford followed up on his win in Birmingham with a best leap of 8.25 metres securing him victory over nearest rival, American Michael Harfield, by a massive 21 centimetres.

Elsewhere, British team-mate Laura Muir won the 1500m, striking the front with nearly two laps to go and pipping Kenya's Faith Chepngetich Kipyegon in 4:00.39.

Richard Kilty ran 20.54 secs despite a difficult lane draw to finish third in the 200m won by France's Christophe Lemaitre.

And Matthew Hudson-Smith led home a trio of British runners to claim second behind Steven Gardiner in the 400m, while Martyn Rooney and Delano Williams come home fourth and seventh.
