Great Britain finished an agonising fourth in the 4×400 metres final at the Olympic Stadium as a courageous anchor-leg run from Martyn Rooney just came up short.

Rooney attacked round the final bend and on the home straight past Russia's Pavel Trenikhin and was closing on Trinidad's Deon Lendore, but was held off.

The host quartet, which also included Conrad Williams, Jack Green and Dai Greene, finished in two minutes 59.53 seconds.
