The 30-year-old was permitted by IAAF after receiving a written request from the Botswanan Federation.

“Following a medical examination which has declared him fit to compete, we have agreed under our existing rules that assuming he makes the qualification time, he will run in the 200m semi-final round this evening,” the IAAF said in a statement.

Makwala had earlier missed the 200m heats on Monday and was barred from competing in the 400m final as organisers tried to halt a norovirus outbreak.
