Britain's CJ Ujah won the 100m with a season's best time of 10.02 seconds at the Rome Diamond League on Thursday.

The 23-year-old edged out France's Jimmy Vicaut and American Ronnie Baker, who were both clocked at 10.05 seconds.

"My focus was to be free and run free," said Ujah, who is now looking forward to the World Athletics Championships in London in August.

"London is the main one. I hope I can do something special then."

Ujah's fellow Briton Desiree Henry was sixth in the women's 100m as the Netherlands' Dafne Schippers took victory from Marie-Josee Ta Lou of the Cote d'Ivoire and Michelle-Lee Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago with a time of 10.99.
