An iconic image depicting the victorious 4x400m relay team at the 1991 World Championships has been recreated almost a quarter of a century later.

Derek Redmond was reunited with his former teammates Roger Black, John Regis and Kriss Akabusi for Briggs & Stratton to mark the launch of InStart, a starting system for petrol-powered lawnmowers. The four were in jovial spirits despite the miserable weather that interrupted proceedings.

The original image taken at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, Japan, shows the quartet draped in Union Jacks holding their spiked trainers aloft in triumph at their incredible gold medal-winning performance.

The new image might be lacking a grand stadium packed with cheering crowds and the bright yellow of their running shoes, but it captures the essence of their friendship all these years later.

Both photographs were captured by the extremely talented Paul David Smith, who simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a shot of the foursome again.
