She again won the 800m in Sunday’s Diamond League meet in California.

She said: “If I’m not running 800m, I’m not running in the world championships.

“My goals are to defend my world title. So if I’m not allowed I’m not allowed.”

She added: “No 1500m, no nothing. I’m just going to take a vacation and then come back next year.” — BBC Sport.
