Sweden's Armand Duplantis set a new world pole vault record of 6.17 metres at an indoor meeting in the Polish town of Torun on Saturday.

Duplantis, the 20-year-old who won silver at last year's world championships in Doha, cleared the bar on his second attempt to break the record of 6.16m set by French vaulter Renaud Lavillenie in 2014.
