Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt were once again the star attractions at a cold and drizzly Diamond League meeting in Zurich.
Jamaican Blake, double Olympic silver medallist at London in the sprints, benefited from a false start by American rival Tyson Gay – and subsequent disqualification – to win the 100 metres in a time of 9.76 seconds.

Compatriot Nesta Carter was a distant second in 9.95secs with Ryan Bailey of the United States third.
Bolt was then pushed hard by Jason Young in the 200m but eventually eased away over the last 50 metres to take the plaudits in 19.66s.
