Tokyo Olympics 2020: Katarina Johnson-Thompson suffers Achilles injury in heptathlon

Johnson-Thompson pulled up in the 200 metres in worrying scenes but picked herself up to jog across the line.

She went down after completing the bend but refused treatment and completed the race but was disqualified because she left the lane.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson had suffered an Achilles problem last year but believed it had healed in time for the start of the Tokyo Games; the 28-year-old’s heptathlon challenge over after finishing the first three events.
