Kenya’s Olympic champion Faith Kipyegon smashed the women’s mile world record at the Diamond League in Monaco.

The 29-year-old crossed the line in 4:07.64, beating Sifan Hassan’s 2019 record by almost five seconds.

“It was amazing. I have done good training so far and I just [went] for it,” Kipyegon said.

“The time was really good because the race was well planned. It just went smoothly and to accomplish the world record – that is amazing.”

Kipyegon, a double Olympic and world 1500m champion, has already set new world records in the 1500m and 5000m this year.
