Katarina Johnson-Thompson maintains a narrow lead as she attempts to retain her heptathlon title at the Commonwealth Games.

The defending champion is 122 points clear of Northern Ireland’s Kate O’Connor after Wednesday morning’s long jump in Birmingham.

O’Connor jumped 6.52 m to score 1014 points, compared to Johnson-Thompson’s best of 6.33 m.

That means Johnson-Thompson maintains a slim lead ahead of the javelin throw, one of their weaker events, and the final 800m on Wednesday night.

The 29-year-old held a 109-point lead overnight as she seeks her first major title since winning the World Championship in 2019.

Matt Hudson-Smith zoomed through the first lap of the 400m at Alexander Stadium.

The Wolverhampton-born star won bronze at the World Championships in Eugene last month, winning his run in 46.26 seconds.
