Yohan Blake, Andre DeGrasse, and Justin Gatlin crossed the line together in the second 100m semi-final, triggering a brief wait before the official result.
DeGrasse was given win with a time of 10.07, while Yohan Blake was awarded second in 10.09. The Jamaican was looking across the line over the final strides when he really should have just kept looking forward; Gatlin was just 1/1000 back in third.

However, the man to beat, Christian Coleman, who followed up his 9.98 fastest heat time from yesterday by winning his 100m semi in 9.88. The American displayed his trademark speed from the blocks and didn’t let up. Impressive stuff from the world indoor champion.
