Athletics coach Lloyd Cowan, who helped Christine Ohuruogu to the Olympic 400m title in 2008, has died aged 58.

As well as the Olympic title, Cowan coached Ohuruogu to 400m silver at London 2012 and 4x400m relay bronze in 2008 and 2016.

Cowan also guided England’s Andy Turner to Commonwealth and European 110m hurdles titles in 2010 and coached his son Dwayne, who won a 4x400m bronze at the 2017 World Championships.
