Enfield and Haringey Harriers sprinter Chijindu Ujah has become just the fifth Briton to record a time of less than ten seconds in the 100m.

The 20-year-old crossed the line in just 9.96 in FBK Games in the Netherlands on Sunday to record the third-fastest 100m by a Brit ever.

Only Linford Christie (9.87) and James Dasaolu (9.91) boast quicker times than the Londoner, who beat his previous best of 10.17 in Loughborough last month.

The Londoner also broke the British Under-23 record with his time in Hengelo and is the current Euopean 100m Junior champion.
