Monaco: Doha has been selected to host the 2019 Athletics World Championships by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) on Tuesday.

The Qatari capital beat off Barcelona and Eugene, Oregon for the event after missing out to London for the 2017 edition.

Doha, who will also host the 2022 World Cup football finals, have already successfully staged the 2006 Asian Games.

The 2015 world championships take place in Beijing from August 22-30, while the London 2017 event is also scheduled for August.
