Britain’s Jo Pavey says it is a bittersweet feeling to receive her 2007 World Championships 10,000m bronze medal after Turkey’s Elvan Abeylegesse had her result chalked off.

Athletics’ governing body the IAAF said the silver medallist had been found guilty of an in-competition doping offence during the event in Japan.

Pavey, 43, was beaten to bronze by American Kara Goucher, who will now be upgraded to silver.
