Fraser-Pryce, with six under-10.70 seconds this season, withdrew late due to a “muscle sprain” she experienced during the warm-up. Thompson-Herah was disqualified for a false start in front of the sold-out 12,700-sold Stade olympique de la Pontaise.

Hobbs went on to clock 10.87 seconds to win the photo finish against Jamaican 200m champion Shericka Jackson third.

Fraser-Pryce said she had felt discomfort in her hamstring. “Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to get any better,” she said.

“As a precaution, my coach decided not to risk racing at this point.”

In the other major results, European doubles champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen fixed a world lead time of 3:29.05 as he took a 1500m win over Kenya’s Abel Kipsang.
