It only dawned on youngster Karsten Warholm that he had become world 400 metres hurdles champion on Wednesday when he made a Reuters photographer an offer he could not refuse. Turkey's Yasmani Copello took silver in 48.49 and former twice world champion A Kerron Clement of the United States won bronze in 48.52, reports Xinhua news agency.

"I found the helmet in the crowd and it just felt right. It is cold and wet like Norway so I guess it suited me!"

"What's going on, is this real?" the 21-year-old asked Noble.

That he should finish just a 10th of a second outside that mark on a wretched night with the rain tumbling down and puddles on the track suggest it was a superior run.

"To win a world championship medal is my dream".

"I got out well and managed to hold it really well". I hope people back in Norway are as happy as I am.

"Decathlon gave me a really good base coming into the hurdles", he said. "All the credit goes to my coach for making me a world class hurdler".

Mowatt who ran from lane three, clocked 48.99 seconds to be placed fourth.

He also said that the weather conditions were pretty challenging. My coach just told me to relax and now I have a medal, I'm so happy.

"He is a talent and showed that today", Clement said.
