Killing Eve star Jodie Comer has said she “couldn’t be prouder” of her school friend and new world champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

Johnson-Thompson, 26, took heptathlon gold at the World Championships in Doha on Thursday.

Comer, also 26, wrote on Instagram: “World champion right there!!!!!!! We couldn’t be prouder of you Johnson-Thompson.”

The pair were classmates at Liverpool’s St Julie’s Catholic High School.

The actress, who has just scooped an Emmy for her role as Villanelle in the BBC 1 series, wrote: “Your hard work and dedication shows no limits.”
