British sprinter Jonnie Peacock won at the Great North City Games before he takes a year off from the sport.

The two-time para-athletics champion eased to victory in the T44 100m in Newcastle, after his rival American Richard Browne pulled out.

The 24-year-old clocked 11.28 seconds, with fourth place going to 14-year-old Dutch sprinter Olivier Hendriks.
