Gold medalist Caster Semenya won the 2017 final in London on Sunday night in a time of 1:55.16.

Caster Semenya has won her third 800 metres World Championships gold medal.

Semenya won the 2017 final in London on Sunday night in a time of 1:55.16.

Earlier in the week the reigning 800m Olympic champion won bronze in the 1,500m, her first major final in that longer event.

Semenya now has three World Championships golds to go with her two Olympic winner's medals.

She has also equaled Maria Mutola's World Championships record of three 800m gold medals.

Semenya shrugged aside ongoing criticism and debate over her gender to sprint to victory in a new personal best time.
