The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) have announced that Budapest will host the World Athletics Championships in 2023.

The announcement means Hungary will host the prestigious event for the first time, 25 years after holding a successful European championship in Hungary.

IAAF’s board chair, Sebastian Coe, said in July that Budapest would be the “preferred” host in 2023. The biennial event will be held in Doha, Qatar, in 2019 and in Eugene, Oregon, US, in 2021.
