Highlights - Idowu wins Gold (UK users only)
Former triple jump world champion Jonathan Edwards says he is delighted at Phillips Idowu's triple jump gold at the World Athletics Championships.
Idowu's victory in Berlin makes him Britain's first male world champion since Edwards claimed gold in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 2001.
"For me there was nothing but undiluted joy for Phillips," said Edwards.
"He was obviously overwhelmed when he won gold and I felt a real sense of emotion for him."
Idowu, 30, set a new personal best of 17.73 metres to claim Britain's second gold of the World Championships in Berlin on Tuesday, adding to Jessica Ennis's heptathlon gold.
Edwards, also a former Olympic, Commonwealth and European champion, will present Idowu with his medal on Wednesday and was pleased to see his one-time rival fulfil his promise.
"I know how tough it has been for him the last few years," said Edwards.
