Chris O’Hare relied on his finishing strength to clinch a repeat win in the British Road Mile Champs in London on Sunday afternoon.

The Glasgow 2019 medallist returned to these shores from his American home to repeat his gold medal win of 12 months ago in the Westminster Mile event.

As Chris finished, the clock was clearly showing 3:59 and it looked as if he achieved the first sub-four-minutes mile in the event but road times are rounded up to the nearest second and it was officially recorded as 4:00.

‘I was not too bothered about the time but to win the race but Tom Marshall set a good pace and I knew it would be fast,’said O’Hare.
