Tomorrow sees Jessica Ennis-Hill go again - this time in the long-jump and 200m - while London 2012 winners Greg Rutherford and David Rudisha also compete.

The evening is likely to end with a women's 100m that includes English Gardner, Murielle Ahoure and Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor - three of the top four fastest in the world this year.

All done today

After difficult starts to the year, Usain Bolt and Mo Farah have come out the sort of class that successfully defends world title.

Bolt won the 100m in 9.87, Farah won the 3,000m in a world-leading time of 7:34.66. Elsewhere Jessica Ennis-Hill looked just dandy over the hurdles while there were promising sprint performances from CJ Ujah and Zharnel Hughes and a victory in the 1500m for Laura Weightman.

All in all a very pleasing night for the event's organiser and main draws.

Farah wins 3,000m

Gabby Logan and Denise Lewis win awards for courage under fire as they continue to chew the analytical fat while the GDP of a small nation goes up in smoke with an enormous firework display behind them.

Well done all.

Farah wins 3,000m

The Union Jacks are out in force. There is one draped across the slight frame of Farah as he heads off on his lap of honour and plenty is the crowd to greet the Londoner.

Farah breaks out the Mobot and an Eric Morecambe style aerial heel click in response to the cheers.

"Mo Farah has rebuilt himself. He felt the support of the crowd tonight and he needed that after all the things that have been written in the newspapers. He's in really good shape."

"You can only do what you do best and that, for me, is running," so says Mo Farah.

He adds that he was never worried about the crowd's reaction to him in the wake of the allegations over coach Alberto Salazar's methods.

"That was very impressive. It's so difficult to hit the bell and throw in a 55-second last lap. This is the Mo Farah we saw in 2012 and he's in the form of his life."

Mo Farah's time is the fastest in the world this year. And he does not look hugely puffed either.

The rest of the field were choking on fumes. He is going to take some catching come Beijing.

Mo Farah is going to win. And by some distance.

"What a show-closer here, the winner of double gold and hero of London 2012, in the lead at the bell."

The wall of sound sweeps round the stadium pursuing Mo Farah round the track. One lap to go and as the bell sounds, Farah stretches his legs.

Two laps to go and Mo Farah is chomping at the bit. He hits the front and turns up the heat under the rest of the field.

1800m gone and it is Kenya's Emmauel Kipsang in front now. Mo Farah still sitting, waiting and watching in second.

Veteran American Bernard Lagat and Ethiopia's Yenew Alamirew are among the field.

Gideon Gathimba is making the pace at the moment, with Mo Farah looks smooth and calm in third.

Mo Farah's name is read out to the crowd and is roared to the rafters.

If his public image has taken a hammering in the last few weeks, it has not dented his appeal among this crowd.

Usain Bolt gives Mo Farah an encouraging hug as he strolls past the men's 3000m start on his lap of honour.

Farah, a double Olympic champion, has his own business to deal with.

A time that was just 0.12 seconds outside his British record in the Monaco 1500m suggests he is in the form to seal the deal.

So, where does Usain Bolt's time of 9.87 seconds put him in the broader context?

It makes him equal sixth in the world this year - alongside Tyson Gay.

Justin Gatlin, Asafa Powell, Trayvon Bromell, Keston Bledman and Jimmy Vicault are the men to have gone faster.

Usain Bolt, speaking to BBC Sport: "Overall, it was a good run. My start was really poor. My coach keeps telling to me relax. I want to run faster and it is getting there.

"The first race was very smooth and I was very happy with what I did. In the final, I got a bad start and it all went downhill from there.

"It is hard work and dedication. I just need to keep pushing myself. I feel pretty good. If I continue to work on my start, it will all be good.

"I really love this crowd and I enjoy competing here. One of my most favourite moments was the 200m in London in 2012."

Where's the challenge going to come from?

Well, look for Michael Rodgers and Jimmy Vicault in the two lanes outside Bolt as well as compatriot Kemar Bailey-Cole.

Men's 100m final coming up

Usain Bolt looks like he has re-discovered his strut after that 9.87 seconds in the heats. He wanders around the Olympic Stadium track, looking around like a homeowner inspecting the builders' work.

"Like what you have done with the place. Like a bit of footy myself."

The arms are loose as he does some Bruce Grobbelaar spaghetti limbering up as his name is read out.

Mike Costello

Athletics commentator on BBC Radio 5 live

"Can we ever get enough of this man? Flashlights all around the stadium, a party atmosphere here, but for Usain Bolt it's a serious night of competition for him."

We think....it was close.

Yep, by three hundredths of a second.

Frenchman Pascal Martinot-Legarde was at the front of the field but smashed into the final flight of hurdles and was sapped of his pace at the crucial time.

Richardson took advantage. Britons Clarke and Omoregie were eighth and ninth respectively.

Right, the high hurdlers are back in the house.

Aries Merritt, the Olympic champion, is in lane seven, but the favourites are Pascal Martinot-Lagarde and Orlando Ortega.

Laura Weightman, speaking to BBC Sport: "That was incredible. It is the first time I have been here since the Olympics. I thought this is my track, my race and I gave myself a boost. I was really pleased with that.

"The minute I walked out, I got a smile across my face. The reception I got from the crowd is why I won. the last 20-30m showed I was not going to let anyone pass me."

Hughes leads Diamond Race standings

After his win tonight Britain's Zharnel Hughes is leading the Diamond League standings.

If he stays there over the next two races he will be £25,000 richer. Nice work.
