Never mind the 3,000m, it will take Mo Farah to run the media gauntlet that awaits him off the track.

Such are the obligations of a five-time world champion.


WATCH: Harrison wins women's 100m hurdles

Women's 100m hurdles

The women's 100m hurdles was a very painful occasion for Jasmin Stowers, who suffered a heavy crash after hitting a hurdle late on. The race, which you can watch here, was won by American Kendra Harrison.

WATCH: Cherry wins men's 400m

Men's 400m

American Michael Cherry took the honours in the men's 400m, but it was a nightmare race for Britain's Matthew Hudson-Smith, who slipped over early on.

Luckily, he did not pick up any injury, with only his pride suffering.

Women's 400m

It was an incredible performance from American Allyson Felix in the women's 400m, who stormed away to set the fastest time of 2017.

Time to look back at some of the other highlights from a great afternoon of athletics from London Stadium.

'I'm pretty happy'

Women's mile

GB's Laura Muir after finishing second in the mile and missing the British record by 0.06 seconds.

"I’m actually pretty happy," she tells BBC One. "I missed the record but it’s a PB for me. I’m really happy with where I'm at. That last 100m – oh man it was tough. I loved being out here and it was a great reception."

Laura Muir

'She was the perfect pacemaker'

Women's mile

Andrew Cotter

BBC commentator on BBC One

The way Laura Muir ran was brave. It's the second fastest time ever by a Briton. But she was the perfect pacemaker of Hellen Obiri. There is a warning from Obiri.

It's back to the drawing board for Laura Muir. You usually finish on the up going into a championship.

WATCH: Muir sets personal best, but finishes second in women's mile

Women's mile

Laura Muir had aimed for a new world record in the women's mile, but narrowly missed out, while also finishing second in the race.

Watch the action again here.

KJT comes fourth

Women's long jump

Katarina Johnson-Thompson has just missed out on a top-three finish in the women's long jump.

She produced her best effort with her last jump but her mark of 6.75 is not good enough for a higher finish, although it is a season's best.

America's Tianna Bartoletta wins, while Britain's Lorraine Ugen and Jazmin Sawyers come sixth and ninth respectively.

'Making people proud to be British'

Men's 3,000m - Farah wins

Britain's Mo Farah reacts to his 3,000m victory and also responds to reports this week that one of his previous drug tests required further testing, before he was then cleared when his test results were then viewed as 'normal'.

"It was pretty amazing, thank you to the crowd," he says. "I love London, there's no place like home. I have to stay focused the next three weeks. I enjoy racing and not the other stuff.

"Other things don’t distract me. I’m only in control of my legs. Never will I fail a test.

"I run year after year with joy and there's not much more you can do.

"I love being on the podium, hearing the anthem and making people proud to be British. I love what I do and I’m good at what I do – you can’t worry about other stuff."

Farah wins

Men's 3,000m

We've been here before. Mo Farah sprints away to win as he is roared home by a large crowd at the London Stadium.

Spain's Adel Mechaal had managed to stay with Farah for 2,950m of that race and he comes second, with another Brit, Andrew Butchart taking third place in a personal best.

Mo Farah will definitely be in the World Championships and this man, Chijindu Ujah, hopes to join him in the British squad next month.

The 100m runner, hoping to claim the last place available in his distance, did everything he could to impress the selectors by winning in a time of 10.02 seconds, as you can see here.

There's the 'Mobot'

Men's 3,000m

A great reception for four-time Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah, who gives the crowd what they want with a 'Mobot' before indulging in some shadow boxing for the cameras.

He is one of six Brits in the race, the others being Andrew Butchart, Adam Clarke, Nick Goolab, Rob Mullett and Marc Scott.

'I'm never going to fail a drug test'

Men's 3,000m (15:48 BST)

Watch as four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah tells BBC Breakfast he is "never going to fail a test" following the release of hacked documents that appear to show his test results once caused suspicion.

Hackers Fancy Bears published documents on Wednesday that state Farah returned a sample that needed further testing.

The data goes on to show Farah was then cleared when his results were later viewed as "normal".

'Unbeatable Farah'

Mo Farah is so unbeatable because he is so rarely injured. Other competitors know if he's on that start line he's on his A-game and they have to be on top form to beat him.

Up next is the last race of the day, featuring a certain Mo Farah.

Muir sets PB, but misses British record

Women's mile

So, so close to a British record for Laura Muir. Her effort of 4.18.03 is her personal best, but six hundredths behind Zola Budd's time of 4.17.57 that she had hoped to beat.

To make it worse for Muir, she does not even win the race. Her and Kenya's Hellen Obiri had pulled well clear of the rest and Obiri sprints clear with 60m left to take the victory and finish more than a second ahead of Muir in second.

Halfway into the women's mile and Laura Muir is on for a British record. She leads the way.

Men's 400m hurdles

Before the women's mile gets going, time for another highlight that you can watch.

This time it is a season's best from American Kerron Clement in the men's 400m hurdles, who takes advantage of Kyron McMaster hitting the last two hurdles when out in front.

All eyes are now focused on Laura Muir, who is aiming to run the fastest mile ever by a female British athlete. The time of 4.17.57 is the mark from Zola Budd that Muir has her sights on.

Merritt wins 110m hurdles

Men's 110m hurdles final

Aries Merritt

What a story it would be if 2012 Olympic champion Aries Merritt, who had kidney surgery two years ago, goes on to win the World Championship back on the same track.

He is certainly in great form before next month's event as he has just won the men's 110m hurdles.

Great Britain's David Omoregie won his heat earlier in the day but his hopes in the final are dashed early on as he clatters into the first hurdle. He can still finish the race, but his time of 13.70 leaves him in eighth.

Headaches for the selectors

Men's 800m

There is great strength in depth in the men's 800m and today's race has caused a headache for the selectors.

Elliot Giles and Guy Learmonth came fifth and 10th and will be in the London 2017 squad. But fellow Brits Jake Wightman (seventh), Kyle Langford (eighth) and Andrew Osagie (ninth) all gained the needed qualification time of 1.45.9. Tough decisions ahead.

'It's like a dream'

Men's 800m

And now for some British reaction from that race.

Elliot Giles and Guy Learmonth both recorded personal bests to cement their places in the squad for the World Championships, after they had come first and second respectively in the British trials in Birmingham.

Giles told BBC Sport: "A PB but I still didn't win it. The pace in the first lap took me by surprise. With a bit more experience hopefully I can latch on to those guys. It’s a PB and I don’t know when I‘m going to wake up, it's like a dream."

Learmonth: "I’ve never ran these times before. I faded a wee bit but I was hanging in. Next time I’ll keep progressing but it’s a big, big breakthrough. I’ll be back here next month and I’m over the moon."

WATCH: Amos wins men's 800m in fastest time of the year

Men's 800m

It is definitely worth watching again, and here is Nijel Amos winning the men's 800m in the fastest time of 2017.

KJT in fifth so far

Women's long jump

Britain's heptathlon star Katarina Johnson-Thompson is in a respectable fifth in the long jump, with her only clean jump of three so far at 6.61m.

Fellow Brit Jazmin Sawyers has had three successful jumps but is last with a 6.44m.

Serbia's Ivana Spanovic leads the way with a season's best 6.88m.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson


Women's 100m hurdles

Not for the first time today, we've seen an athlete left crumpled in a heap after some carnage in the hurdles.

American Jasmin Stowers crashed into the last hurdle and it was a heavy fall on to the track. Hopefully she is OK. Her compatriot Kristi Castlin also failed to finish, but in less spectacular circumstances after hitting an early hurdle that threw her out of her stride.

With six of the nine finalists coming from America, it is no surprise that one of them one won. Kendra Harrison is that woman, with Australia's Sally Pearson, a gold medallist here in 2012, coming second.

CJ Ujah pulled out of the 100m final at the British Championships with cramp, but that win over some of his strongest domestic rivals will have strengthened his case with the selectors ahead of their World Championships summit next week.

'Hopefully that's enough'

Men's 100m - Britain's Ujah wins


Britain's CJ Ujah after winning the 100m: "Hopefully that's enough to make the World Championships team – we’ll have to see.

"It was a nice race. I’ve been running fast this year, you need to be able to do it every round. I feel a sub-10 seconds in myself."

'More than enough to impress the selectors'

Men's 100m

Colin Jackson

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC One

If you can win on the Diamond League circuit people start to know your name and they fear you. CJ Ujah is running consistently around the 10-second mark.

I would say that is more than enough to impress the selectors.
