Thompson-Herah wins 100mbut team-mates only give her ‘muted’ Felicidades

ELAINE THOMPSON-HERAH appeared to get the cold shoulder by Jamaican teammates as she won the women’s 100m title in an Olympic record time.

The 29-year-old retained her crown in Tokio and stormed to victory in an extraordinary time of 10.61 segundos.

That was 0.13 seconds quicker than Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

Shericka Jackson won the bronze in a personal best of 10.76 segundos.

And that made it an amazing Jamaican 1-2-3 en el podio.

It is a quick track and new shoe technology is enabling fast times and the mark was 0.01 seconds quicker than the time posted by the controversial Florence Griffith Joyner at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Yet her compatriots were very reluctant to congratulate her at the finish line.

With Thompson-Herah collapsed on the track as she took in her victory, Fraser-Pryce and Jackson were nowhere to be seen.

Eventually they emerged, giving her a slight tap on the shoulder in recognition of her win.

BBC commentators quickly picked up on the poor acknowledgement of her success.

And they generously described it as ‘muted’.

Even the BBC presenter Gabby Logan noted that they were ‘clearly not besties’.

Dina Asher-Smith failed to qualify for the finaland later broke down in tears as she revealed her problems with an injured hamstring.

She then heartbreakingly pulled out of her favoured 200m event.

But Team GB’s Daryll Neita scrapped into the eight-woman final.

sin embargo, she came in last in 11.12 segundos.
