Daniel Awde crosses the line in a new personal-best time

Britain's Daniel Awde made a superb start to the gruelling decathlon with a personal best in the opening event in the Olympic Stadium.

Awde responded to the roars of another capacity 80,000 crowd with a storming run of 10.71 seconds in the fourth and final heat of the 100 metres, taking 0.14secs off his previous best.

That was good enough to put the 24-year-old in seventh place overall, 85 points behind world record holder Ashton Eaton, who ran an Olympic decathlon best of 10.35s to lead fellow American Trey Hardee by 17 points.
