Tokyo Olympics: Dina Asher-Smith DOES compete in 4x100m relay despite hamstring injury

Dina Asher-Smith came through unscathed in the heats as Team GB set a new British record in the women's 4x100m relay on Thursday.

The sprint star - who had her Olympics wrecked by a hamstring injury - returned for the first time after failing to reach the 100m final and pulling out of the 200m.

Asher-Smith was untroubled as she ran the third leg with the team impressively winning their heat in 41.55 seconds - a new British record.
