Kyle Langford recovered from a dislocated knee to earn a new personal best in the 800m just two weeks later at the Muller Anniversary Games.

The Watford runner admitted he thought his season was over following the injury, but managed to finish with a sub 1.45 for the first time, qualifying for the World Championships in Doha.

Speaking to British Athletics TV after the race, Langford spoke about his injury and his speedy return to the track.

"I dislocated my knee two weeks ago and I thought my season was completely over," he said.

"I couldn't walk, I tore a couple of ligaments and I just thought it was so unlikely I would get here to race today.

"I got a track session in late this week and thought there's a chance and then I got on the line and run a PB.

"Once I get this knee up and ready, 1.43 should be easy. I was just chilling out there today, I wasn't pushing it, I was trying to keep it clean and stay relaxed.

"I'd been trying to force the time too much, but this time I just relaxed and took it easy for 700 metres, then I tried to move up.

"Hopefully within a couple of weeks and a bit more track work, get this knee fine and there's going to be a quick time and a medal at Doha."
