Serbia's Ivana Spanovic missed out on a World Championship medal after her appeal against her recorded distance of 6.91m in Friday night's women's final was rejected.

The 27-year-old looked to have taken gold by leaping beyond the 7.02m that would earn first place for America's Brittney Reese.

However, the number on Spanovic's back flapped loose and, in accordance with the rules, her mark was given at the point where that made contact with the sand - 6.91m. Spanovic had to settle for fourth.

Reese claimed her fourth world long jump title after a tense, tight contest in which only six centimetres separated the top four competitors.

Darya Klishina, competing as a neutral athlete after Russia was banned over state-sponsored doping, took silver for her first medal at a major finals.

Titleholder and Olympic champion Tianna Bartoletta won bronze, while Spanovic missed out on a medal at a global finals for the first time since 2013.
