Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has run the fastest women's 100 metres of the year in the Diamond League in Poland.

The 35-year-old claimed a record fifth women's 100m world title last month in the US, but skipped the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

The Jamaica star's 10.66 seconds is the best for the year and was enough to see off American Aleia Hobbs, who came in second.

Jamaica's Shericka Jackson prevailed in the 200m with a time of 21.84s to hold off Shaunae Miller-Uibo, who came second.

Trayvon Bromell, of the United States, clocked 9.95sec to win the men's 100m, seeing off compatriot Marvin Bracy who had beaten him for gold at the world championships.
