Taoufik Makhloufi added silver to his 1,500m gold from 2012 in an Algerian record 1:42.61, and the bronze went to American Clayton Murphy in a personal best 1:42.93.

Rudisha won the world title in 2011 and famously Olympic gold 2012 in London in a world record 1:40.91. He then struggled with injury and modest form but was back in command last year with another world title.
