Norway’s Jakob Ingebrigtsen broke the world indoor under-20 record to overcome Ethiopia’s Samuel Tefera in the men’s 1500 metres at the final event of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Indoor Tour season in Düsseldorf.

All eyes were on Tefera heading into the competition at the Arena-Sportpark in the German city following his world record time of 3min 31.18sec set four days ago in Birmingham.

He was denied victory in a close finish in Düsseldorf, with 18-year-old Ingebrigtsen emerging as the winner in 3:36.02.

Tefera was 0.32 seconds adrift of the outdoor European champion and he ended up sandwiched between two Ingebrigtsen brothers.

Filip Ingebrigtsen completed the top three as the Norwegian clocked 3:38.62.

The result was still enough for Tefera to claim the World Indoor Tour title for the discipline, earning him a prize of $20,000 (£15,000/€17,500) and a wildcard entry to the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Nanjing next year.

Poland’s Ewa Swoboda had already earned the women’s 60m tour title prior to the event but missed out on victory in Germany.

Ivory Coast’s Marie-Josee Ta Lou produced a world leading time of 7.02sec to emerge as the winner, with Swoboda second in 7.10 and The Netherlands’ Dafne Schippers third in 7.19.

China's Su Bingtian sealed the overall men’s 60m crown as he added to his victory in Birmingham.

Su sprinted to victory in a time of 6.49, with United States’ Bryce Robertson and Michael Rodgers both clocking 6.57 behind the Chinese sprinter, with Robertson being awarded second place in the photo-finish. 

Three-time world indoor 400m champion Pavel Maslák of the Czech Republic missed out on winning the overall title.

He finished behind America's Nathan Strother both in Düsseldorf and the season standings, having trailed heading into the event.

Strother rounded off the World Indoor Tour season by achieving the fastest time of 46.48, with Maslák second in 46.73.

Russia's Anzhelika Sidorova overcame Greece’s Katerina Stefanidi in the battle for the women’s pole vault honours.

The duo were tied coming into the event but Sidorova enjoyed a head-to-head advantage.

Sidorova, competing as an Authorised Neutral Athlete, achieved a jump of 4.77 metres to secure the title.

Greece’s Nikoleta Kiriakopoulou ended second on 4.67m, while her compatriot Stefanidi trailed down in 4.62m.
