Asher-Smith has become the fastest female British sprinter of all time and great expectatio­ns trail her to Tokyo.

Even before she lands at the Games her profile has skyrockete­d in England to the point where she is ranked one of the nation’s most influentia­l personalit­ies of AfricanCar­ibbean descent.

The 200m world champion will be considered a strong chance in that race and the 100m. The 4x100m relay will also be on the cards.
