Greg Rutherford (GBR) on his way to third place behind Aleksandr Menkov (RUS) and Jinzhe Li (CHN) with a Personal Best of 8.00m in the Men's Long Jump.

“That was absolutely brilliant from my point of view. I felt really good. There are a few things I’ve got to iron out but that’s the best opening I’ve had to an indoor season ever and maybe the best opening to a season at all.

“Obviously I always want to win and I’m very disappointed not to win but I’ve got to be serious with these things. I came back from a massive injury last year which I was worried was going to affect the rest of my career and I’ve managed to jump three jumps better than any British athlete has done this year. I’ve got to be happy to start my season like that.”
