Great Britain's Maria Lyle has won her second gold at the World Para Athletics Championships in Dubai, sprinting to victory in the T35 200m.

The win sees the 19-year old double her medal tally after clinching the T35 100m crown on Sunday.

Lyle crossed the line in 30.33 seconds in a dominant 200m race, with Poland's Jagoda Kibil crossing the line nearly two seconds later to claim silver.

"I'm really happy," said Lyle. "We were waiting a little bit longer for the start so I started to get a bit nervous, but it was more about thinking about my race plan and trying to execute that."

After her sensational victory, Fortune told BBC Sport: "It's amazing. I never thought I would see the day. Anything can happen.

"I thought [the last throw] was rubbish, I thought it was bad but when I saw everyone's reactions, I realised it was good."
