Which is better “implements Runnable” over “extends Thread” to write a thread in Java?

I came to know that there are 2 ways to write a thread using Java.

#1

public class Thread1 implements Runnable {
        public void run() {
            //Code
        }
    }

#2

public class Thread2 extends Thread {
        public Thread2() {
            super("Thread2");
        }
        public void run() {
            //Code
        }
    }

What is the best approach in terms of performance?
