Defending world and Olympic 800m champion David Rudisha has announced he is withdrawing from next week's IAAF World Championships in London due to a quad muscle strain injury.

Rudisha has had a slow start to his 2017 season, having his only win come from a 1:44.90 showing in Hungary. Though Rudisha has experienced early-season difficulties in the past only to perform his best at worlds, this year he will be sitting out during the championships.
