Jamaica  is one of eight nations which  will compete in a  new athletics World Cup to be held in London this summer.

British Athletics has announced that Britain, the United States, Poland, China, Germany, France, Jamaica and South Africa will compete at the London Stadium on July 14 -15.

It is unclear whether it will be an annual event based in London, be held in other countries on rotation or a one-off.

‘This is one of the exciting innovative events we are seeing in our sport and our thanks go to British Athletics and the Mayor of London for creating it and hosting it,’ Lord Coe, the president of athletics’ world governing body the IAAF, said.
