That is all from us for this evening.

The Great Britain squad for the World Championships should be announced next week. The championships themselves are from 22-30 August and are all over the BBC.

See you there.

Looking forward

And athletics as a whole got a shot in the arm as Usain Bolt showed that he has being doing his homework behind the scenes.

His previous best in 2015 was 10.12 seconds. On Friday night, in terrible conditions, he ran 9.87 seconds to win both his heat and the final.

A Justin Gatlin win in Beijing, and all the associated ho-ha, may not happen if the Jamaican has his way.

Looking back...

If this was a health check for British athletics ahead of the world championships next month, I reckon Team GB have passed with flying colours.

Mo Farah looked happy, confident and in form with a win on Friday night. Jessica Ennis looked far sharper than she did in Gotzis, impressing especially in the hurdles. Shara Proctor, Zharnel Hughes and Laura Weightman all had notable wins, while Dina Asher Smith became the first British woman to break 11 seconds at just 19 years old.

Olympic champion Greg Rutherford after coming third: "It was an incredible atmosphere when I came out to jump and the emotions were running high. Sadly the competition didn't go to plan with three fouls to start with putting myself under pressure.

"I've got another competition in five days and will try to right the wrongs there and get myself into a better position. I am confident that by the Worlds all will be fine.

There has been a bit of an impromptu school sportsday held on the home straight, with a collection of Newham youngsters taking each other on over 100m

They get a mighty roar and it is a giant mis-match with the fastest streaking away to win while the backmarkers were still around 60m.

"Dina Asher-Smith carried the kit at London 2012 but she will go to Beijing and the World Championships carrying the hopes of the nation."

Women's 100m

None of the chest-puffing and posturing that the men's 100m consists of.

Dina Asher-Smith is full of praise for Dafne Schippers, telling everyone how easy the Dutchwoman has made the switch from multi-events to sprint specialist.

That's it Dina. Lull her into a false sense of security and then sting her in Beijing.

Women's 100m

Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare was second with Ivory Coast's Murielle Ahoure third.

"Schippers is a heptathlete but a quality sprinter and I think she can challenge the European record. She's improved every year and gets better at the end of the race with her strength."

Dafne Schippers' class shone through as she storms home in a new national record.

Dina Asher-Smith fades, perhaps as she tightens up in the midst of the battle in the middle lanes, and finishes fourth in 11.06.

Women's 100m

Dina Asher-Smith's name is read out to wild cheers and broad grin from the lady herself.

Pressure? This is a pleasure for her.

Down to the blocks. The crowd hush...

Women's 100m

Right, the climax of this afternoon's events is the women's 100m final.

Dina Asher-Smith's time of 10.99 was matched by European champion Dafne Schippers in one of the other heats and the dangerous Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast is in between them in the middle lanes.

Men's mile race

Asbel Kiprop wins in 3:54.87

Asbel Kiprop checks on the big screen as he leads the field down the home straight, as casually as a passenger looking for a gate number as the snaffle duty free.

Nope, no signs of anyone able to apply any real pressure and he coasts over with space to spare.

Men's mile race

Asbel Kiprop, two-time world 1500m champion and Beijing 2008 winner, will be the class of this field.

But keep an eye out for United States Ben Blankenship who seems to be modelling his look on the Big Lebowski. He stands out a little.

Here he is setting a new world record at the world distance relay earlier this year.

GB win men's 4x100m relay

"All the momentum was lost because the changeover meant Ujah had to slow down and then re-accelerate. He composed himself as Vicaut got closer and closer. Not the greatest performance but the baton got around - just about."

Steve Cram

BBC athletics commentator

"If Britain are going to win a medal, they still need to be faster. The USA and Jamaica will be strong and France look like they're hot at the moment."

Brendan Foster

Olympic medallist and BBC athletics commentator

"There were some good changeovers from GB. They weren't as fast as in the World Team Championships but the competition for a place in the relay team is going to be very strong indeed now."

CJ Ujah looks nervous rather than ecstatic as he crossed the line. The reason why was Jimmy Vicaut flying up behind him on the home straight.

If the race had been a couple of metres longer, the Frenchman would have got the nod.

As it was Ujah held on and Britain's slick changeovers get their rewards.

Great Britain's A team consists of Richard Kilty, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, James Ellington and CJ Ujah.

France will be tough to beat. Jimmy Vicaut will bring them home.

The United States, anchored by Michael Rodgers, will be strong as ever.

Men's 800m

Michael Rimmer, speaking to BBC One: "I was worried at 600m and I got boxed in for the last 50m. But it's good to have two of us at the Worlds - it's not much fun on your own. I want to race against another Brit."

Kyle Langford added: "I've been careful with my races. I'm a Championship runner, not a time-trialler."

Men's long jump result

Rutherford comes third

Olympic champion Greg Rutherford finishes in third place after completing his leaps with a best of 8.18m.

South Africa's Zarck Visser was leading with 8.21 but American Marquis Dendy took the victory with a leap of 8.38 with his last effort.

Nijel Amos, speaking to BBC One after beating David Rudisha: "It's all about winning. Racing against David gives me motivation."

Men's 800m

Britain's Michael Rimmer budged and barged his way into fifth in a crowd scene and his time of 1:45.67 will book his place on a plane to the World Championships.

Kyle Langford was not far behind either. He was seventh in 1:45.78. The 19-year-old became the first junior to win the senior British title since Steve Ovett earlier this year and, barring any over-caution, should also be going to Beijing.

Men's 800m

David Rudisha, speaking to BBC One, after coming second: "It's always special here, it shows how they love 800m. I'm working hard, I have been doing a lot of speed work in the last few weeks and I am improving."

Men's 800m

Steve Cram

BBC athletics commentator

"The problem for Rudisha is that he can go out hard but he can't maintain it anymore, certainly in the home straight. Nijel Amos is tough though... and very good."

Nijel Amos lines up his target and shoots it down, allowing David Rudisha to lead him into the home straight and then kicking hard to overhaul him in the final 20m.

Here they come. Amos v Rudisha...

The first lap clocks in at 59 seconds.

David Rudisha is in third, striding tall, with Nijel Amos lurking on his shoulder.

Lord Coe, speaking to BBC One: "The atmosphere is extraordinary and so many athletes have been lifted by the noise - it's the best I've heard in three years."

Lord Coe, speaking to BBC One: "David Rudisha is the greatest 800m runner of his generation. Maybe today is the day he rekindles his form. He's been looking forward to this for weeks."

Men's 800m

This about two men.

David Rudisha - the Olympic champion and world record holder and living middle distance legend - and the man who has beaten him in five of their six meetings.

Botswana's Nijel Amos is the younger man at 21 and beat Rudisha in the Commonwealth Games final in Glasgow last summer.

Britain's Kyle Langford - a European Under-23 gold winner - is also in the race.

A stirring run from Kenya's Conseslus Kipruto who streaks clear of countryman Jairus Birech to win the 3000m steeplechase.

And Greg Rutherford is back in the room!

The Olympic champion failed to register a mark at all with three fouls in his first three jumps. Normally that would have been goodnight and goodbye. But with only eight athletes in the field there is no cut to be dodged.

And Rutherford soars out to 8.12m with his fifth jump in celebration. That is good enough for second, 9cm behind South Africa's Zarck Visser.

Two more jumps to try and find the extra few inches...

Will Ennis-Hill compete at the World Championships?

"Knowing Jess like I do, I think she'd like to be quicker than 23.49 but I think she's had a solid meeting overall. With regards to Beijing, she was very poker-faced."

Will Ennis-Hill compete at the World Championships?

Paula Radcliffe

Marathon world record holder and BBC Sport expert

"Jess doesn't want to go to the Beijing if she's not going to be in contention, so that's a consideration. She wants a good winter too, ahead of Rio next year. She won't want any niggles being carried over."

Jessica Ennis-Hill speaking to BBC One: "I've got to be pleased with the weekend. The hurdles did surprise me how well I did, the 200m is hard - those girls are so quick. But it's improving and my time has come down.

"I feel I'm finding my form and everything's coming together. I've put some good training together and I'm making progress.

"I need to have a chat with my coach about what I can achieve at the Worlds."

Women's 200m

It was a queue of Americans behind winner Elaine Thompson with Tori Bowie second and Candyce Townsend in third.

Steve Cram

"It wasn't great for Jess. She came out of the blocks well but she maybe felt a bit tired after doing the long jump. I reckon she could be about a second behind the winner."
