Briton Katarina Johnson-Thompson's hopes of a medal at the World Championships were left in the balance after she faltered in the high jump.

Johnson-Thompson clocked 13.33 seconds in the 100m hurdles before the high jump, which is one of her best events.

But, despite a personal best of 1.98m, she cleared 1.80m only to fail in three attempts at her next height of 1.86m.

It left Johnson-Thompson in fifth after two events, 162 points behind Olympic champion and leader Nafissatou Thiam.

Cuba's Yorgelis Rodriguez (2,207 points), German Carolin Schafer (2,165) and Nadine Visser (2,088) were second, third and fourth respectively.

The heptathlon will get under way again in the Saturday evening session, when the shot put and 200m will take place.

The remaining three disciplines of long jump, javelin and 800m will be on Sunday.
