Allyson Felix's second leg of the race helped the USA women gain ground, while 100-meter world champion Tori Bowie clinched the victory on a strong anchor leg.

Bowie, a native of Sand Hill, will bring home two gold medals from London after becoming the first American woman since 2005 to win the 100 meters last Sunday.

The Americans, Olympic gold medalists in Rio past year, were led off by Aaliyah Brown who flew out of the blocks to start the run that brought them the world title they last won in 2011.

The changeover from Felix to Akinosun was clean, and the latter kept ahead of both Asher-Smith and Simone Facey, though her change over to Bowie was tight and heading into the final straight it looked as if Neita could pull off the slight upset.

Bowie was shadowed all the way to the line by Briton Daryll Neita who led her team to silver, in 42.12, ahead of 2015 champions Jamaica who were missing their usual anchor runner in Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
