Warholm, who is aiming to win a third successive world title, ran the second-fastest time in the semi-finals and looked well in control –easing all fears about his form and fitness after picking up a hamstring injury last month.

French champion Wilfried Happio finished second to the world record holder in a personal best of 48.14 with USA’s Khallifah ROSSER advancing on time with 48.34.

Meanwhile, Alison dos Santos was in total control of his race and he finished with a whole lot left in reserve after shutting down early in the home straight before crossing the finish line in 47.85 seconds. The Olympic bronze medalist was the only competitor under 48.00 seconds in the semi-finals on Sunday.

USA’s Trevor Bassitt ran 48.17 for second place behind the Brazilian with Rasmus Magi of Estonia finally securing a spot in a global championships final after running 48.40 secs for third in the heat. He advanced on time.

Benjamin, meanwhile, had no worries booking a place in the final –taking the first semi-final heat when beating Jamaica’s Jaheel Hyde, who did 49.09 seconds to advance.
