Noah Lyles has run the fourth fastest 200m time in history.

The 21-year-old completed the distance in 19.50 seconds at the ongoing Diamond League meeting in Lausanne. 

It’s the best performance since Usain Bolt won the Olympic gold in London in 2012.

Earlier this year Lyles ran the second fastest 100m of the season, clocking 9.86 seconds.
