The 31-year-old also won the 200m in 20.58seconds.

"This is my first outdoor meet of the season. I want to participate in many meets with the target being Berlin, but before that the British trials in July," he said.

"The fact that I will not be participating in the Golden League of Berlin has disrupted my meet schedule, but I plan to participate in a meeting in France and everywhere else they invite me," Chambers said.
