America's gold rush continued on Saturday night, with the American quartet taking gold in the women's 4x100-meters relay at the World Athletics Championships.

Allyson Felix's second leg of the race helped the USA women gain ground, while 100-meter world champion Tori Bowie clinched the victory on a strong anchor leg.

Allyson Felix, part of that winning team in Daegu, ran the second leg before passing on to Morolake Akinosun who handed the baton to Bowie, the 100m world champion.

Great Britain took silver in 42.12sec with Jamaica third in 42.19sec.

One particular thing to note is that this medal makes Allyson Felix the most decorated athlete in World Championship history; her 15 medals put her one ahead of fellow all-time greats Merlene Ottey and Usain Bolt.

Britain were roared home by a packed London Stadium crowd and Neita, on the anchor leg, held off Jamaica by 0.07 seconds to secure second place.
