Cian McPhillips set a new European Under-20 record as he finished fourth in his 800m semi-final at the European indoor championships.

McPhillips 1:48.06 to finish in fourth place, a race won by Mateusz Borowski of Poland in 1:45.79 with Britain’s Jamie Webb second in 1:45.99, both qualify for tomorrow’s final.

18-year-old McPhillips looked totally at home in the European championship, letting the pace go early on and running his own race to break the European under-20 record.

Belgium’s Eliot Crestan took third place in 1:48.12 ahead of English. English was never in the mix for a place in the final.

Elsewhere Nadia Power bowed out of the women’s 800m after making a move a bit too early in her 800m semi-final.
