Jemma Reekie's astonishing early-season form has continued with a third national record in the space of two races.

The 21-year-old, who last week smashed Jenny Meadows' 10-year-old 800m indoor mark, broke both the British indoor 1500m record and that for an indoor mile while contesting Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games in New York on Saturday.

Her time of 4:17.88, and her 1500m split of 4:00.56, took two records away from her training partner Laura Muir and cemented her shock status as a global medal contender in an Olympic year.
