She was beaten to gold by USA’s Athing Mu, who also won last year’s Tokyo Olympics, while Kenya’s Mary Moraa was third.

Hodgkinson was leading by 0.03s with 700m to go, but Mur rallied in the final 100m and managed to edge out her British rival just before the finish line.

The medal is Britain’s sixth at the World Cup in America, which concludes on Sunday.
