Wayde van Niekerk cruised to victory in his first serious 400m race in Lausanne on Thursday night as he grabbed his second world lead.
The Olympic champion even slowed before crossing the line‚ but he still stopped the clock on 43.62sec‚ a record for this Diamond League meet and a time faster than any active athlete in the world.
Only four other men in history have been quicker‚ including American Michael Johnson‚ who had held t previous 43.66 meet record.
