Volunteer 'runner' Alison Jones and Team GB sprinter Dina Asher-Smith

Dina Asher-Smith has helped launch the volunteering programme for the 2017 World Athletics & ParaAthletics Championships in London.

The London-born sprinter, who was a kit carrier at the 2012 London Olympics, said: “It was an amazing experience.

“I would say to everyone they should get involved as it will be one of the most amazing experiences of your life.”

Up to 4,000 volunteers will be needed to deliver the events in the stadium, Olympic Park and across London.

It will be the first time that the two championships will be taking place in the same city in the same year.

Anyone interested in becoming a ‘runner’ for the events can register their interest from 28 June here
