Sweden’s Mondo Duplantis held his nerve to better his world pole vault record at the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade on Sunday. Duplantis went clear at 6.20 metres on the third time of asking in raucous conditions at the Stark Arena to improve by 1cm his previous best set two weeks ago in the same Serbian venue.

The Swede joined the competition with the bar at 5.60m, going on to pass four times as rivals fell by the wayside.

Duplantis saw American Chris Nilsen fail at 5.95m and Brazil’s Rio Olympic champion Thiago Braz at 6.05m.
