Wayde van Niekerk wins 400m in Monaco Diamond league with a new meeting record time of 43.73 seconds. Van Niekerk ran the first 200m extremely hard pushing to the shoulder of Makwala before the 200m mark but things didn’t all go his way with Makwala fighting back to get a lead at the 300m. The two Africans were then deadlocked into the home straight where Van Niekerk had to dig deep for the victory and was pushed all the way by Makwala into breaking the MR (Meeting Record).
