Great Britain’s Matthew Hudson-Smith beat his own 400m European record with a convincing victory in his season opener at the Diamond League in Oslo.

The 29-year-old ran 44.07 at the Bislett Games, beating his 44.26 from last year’s World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

“Preparation has been going well,” he told BBC Sport. “I knew anything was possible. The time was a bonus.

“I don’t really care about times, I care about victory and preparing for the Olympics. Times are temporary, medals are forever. I’m healthy. Last year I had tendonitis in my Achilles. The goal is the Olympics.
