Coe’s been re-elected along with Ximena Restrepo, a former Colombian 400m runner, who will be IAAF’s first ever female vice-president.

Newley elected council members include Hiroshi Yokokawa, Antti Pihlakoski, Anna Riccardi, Nan Wang, Adille Sumariwalla, Nawal El Moutawakel, Abby Hoffman, Sylvia Barlag, Alberto Juantorena, Willie Banks, Raul Chapado, Dobromir Karamarinov and Beatrice Ayikoru.

The IAAF World Championships get underway in Doha this Friday.
