Laura Muir took a gutsy silver medal in the women's 1500 metres at the World Indoor Championships on Saturday.

Her success came minutes after Eilidh Doyle has clinched a bronze over 400m.

Muir, 24, who claimed 3000m bronze on Thursday, finished behind Ethiopia's Genzebe Dibaba who claimed a double after also winning the 3000m.

Muir said trackside: "I just got a taste of it after the 3000. I just ran my socks off. I just thought 'stay with them, be controlled' and I came off with silver this time."

Meanwhile Doyle - in the final after being upgraded in the semi-final following disqualifications - took her first individual world medal. She ran a season's best of 51.60 seconds to come third behind a USA one-two.

She said track side: "I knew I had another chance and I'm just delighted I was able to do that."

Muir, who finished in four minutes 06.23 seconds, overtook Sifan Hassan on the final lap after the Holland runner finished ahead of her in the 3,000m.

It represented a huge success for the Scot, whose only other major medals had come when she won double gold at the European Indoor Championships Belgrade last year

But in loaded fields in the 3000m and 1500m, against three-time 3,000m champion Dibaba, Sifan Hassan and Hellen Obiri Muir's achievements need to be recognised.

Muir's achievements, although not gold, top Katarina Johnson-Thompson's pentathlon gold because of the strength of the respective fields.

She is now a serious competitor on the world stage and seems likely to improve, especially once she finishes her veterinary studies in May.

Muir will miss next month's Commonwealth Games as she focuses on her final exams but will now be a marked woman at the European Championships in Berlin in August.

Dame Jess Ennis-Hill, on Twitter, praised Muir's run, saying: "@lauramuiruns is such a determined, strong and amazingly talented athlete and I’m so happy for her. A silver and a bronze medal. Absolutely fantastic!!!"
