Laura Muir claimed her second gold medal of the championships by winning the 1500m final.

The Scot destroyed the field by coming home in 4:05.92 - more than three seconds ahead of Poland's Sofia Ennaoui. Ireland's Ciara Mageean took the bronze medal.

The Glasgow University graduate followed up her 3,000m success by setting the pace and powering away in the penultimate lap. The gap only got bigger as Muir underlined her class.
