  • Doyle won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland

Eilidh Doyle has been selected by her fellow athletes to captain the British team at the IAAF World Championships in London.

The Scottish 400m hurdler was elected into the role by her teammates after completing a grand slam of medals last summer when she won Olympic 4x400m relay bronze in Rio.

Speaking to British Athletics, she said: "I'm absolutely chuffed to bits".

Doyle, who will take to the track at the World Championships for a fifth time, was the face of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and completed a "grand slam" set of Commonwealth, European and World Championship medals a year ago in Rio, when she added Olympic 4x400m bronze to her collection.

Its addition brings the number of medal events at the 2017 World Championships, due to take place from August 4 to 13, to 48.

The 30-year-old previously represented Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympics and Scotland at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Doyle is also a former European champion and Commonwealth Games silver medallist, although her best performance at the Worlds came in 2013, where she finished fifth.

"I'm delighted for Eilidh. She's a fierce competitor and a fantastic role model for younger athletes in the team", Black said.

"Therefore, to ensure the long-term credibility of the World Championships, we will follow the recommendation of the Race Walking Committee and assess the development of the event to determine whether there are sufficient numbers of athletes and countries legitimately interested".
