Allyson Felix won her 15th world career medal on Saturday (Aug 12) as the United States won the women's 4x100 metres relay.
It was the sixth time the USA have won the event and the gold was also a record 15th World Championship medal for Felix.
The Americans, Olympic gold medalists in Rio a year ago, were led off by Aaliyah Brown who flew out of the blocks to start the run that brought them the world title they last won in 2011.

The Americans timed 41.82 seconds with 100m world champion Tori Bowie bringing home the baton.
The changeover from Felix to Akinosun was clean, and the latter kept ahead of both Asher-Smith and Simone Facey, though her change over to Bowie was tight and heading into the final straight it looked as if Neita could pull off the slight upset.
Great Britain took silver in 42.12 seconds with Jamaica third in 42.19 seconds.
