- Hudson‑Smith dominates final to win in time of 44.53sec
- PhD student Alex Haydock-Wilson secures bronze
World bronze. Commonwealth silver. And now, on a balmy night in Munich, European gold. What a heavy metal summer it has been for Matt Hudson-Smith who, over 25 magical days, has become the first British athlete to win three major medals across three different outdoor championships in the same year.
And the 27-year-old did it in style, crossing the line in a one-sided 400m final in 44.53sec. But this was not just about making a history boy, but something far deeper.
