Pole vaulter Lavillenie misses worlds due to painful hamstring

Former pole vault world record holder Renaud Lavillenie is to miss the World Athletics Championships in Budapest due to a hamstring injury, the Frenchman said on Monday.

It rounds off a miserable year for the 36-year-old 2012 Olympic champion, who did not manage one successful vault at the French championships at the end of July.
