Dina Asher-Smith sealed an impressive return to competition as she equalled her personal best in claiming victory in the women’s 60 metres at the World Indoor Tour in Karlsruhe.

It was the 25-year-old’s first taste of international competition since winning the world 200m title in October 2019.

Asher-Smith crossed the line in a time of 7.08secs ahead of Orlann Ombissa-Dzangue of France while teammate and current British record holder Asha Philip finished fifth.

Earlier, Asher-Smith cruised through her semi-final heat in 7.11secs in her first indoor race for three years.

After taking last year off from competition, she is now set to step up her preparations for the delayed Tokyo Olympics.

Asher-Smith is scheduled to race in Dusseldorf on Sunday and also compete in France before the European Indoors in Poland in March.
