Olympic Champion Elaine Thompson-Herah delivered on her promise to produce something special when she sped to a world leading 10.85s (0.2m/s) in the Women’s 100m at the Rome Diamond League on Thursday.

Thompson-Herah who isn’t usually the quickest out of the blocks, got a bullet start and that early advantage saw her cruise to victory over a quality field in the Golden Gala Stadio Olympico.
