Controversy in London this evening as Scotland's Lynsey Sharp has been disqualified from the 800m following her semi-final. 

Sharp was involved in a battle with Charlene Lipsey as both athletes crossed the line. The pair of them had their eyes closed during the run-in and their arms were interlocked but it is Sharp who has perhaps harshly been judged to be in the wrong and the Scot has been disqualified.
