The post mortem on British success will continue - it was ever thus.

Join us tomorrow night when there are five gold medals up for grabs.

See you there!

Back in time?

Darren Campbell

Former British sprinter on BBC Radio 5 live

I remember the days when Britain won four or five medals. The Olympics in 2004, Kelly Holmes was the only one to leave with medals at the track. The pressure was on us the relay team to win one. If medals are not won, the funding is cut. All this stuff the young athletes have been given will go.

So then you are back to the place where you have to graft again. You may have to have a job and train.

'Mo has the only medal'

Darren Campbell

Former British sprinter on BBC Radio 5 live

The reality is that Mo Farah has the only medal. He is retiring from the track. What are we pinning our hopes on?

Some guys have made finals. That is good for next time. But we have got something wrong.

Brendan Foster has been on here. We are letting him walk away and not tapping into all the experience he has... wow!

Finding success?

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

Laura Weightman was really low after Rio. She needed a lot of help. To add to it she was taken off funding. What she did was find a really good psychologist at Leeds Uni. She is a new athlete, a better athlete.

Great Britain won seven medals at the last World Championship, with four golds.

Two for Mo Farah, Greg Rutherford in the long jump and Jessica Ennis-Hill in the heptathlon.

'Troubling for the sport'

British woe

Mike Costello

BBC Radio 5 live athletics commentator

If you look across the events to come, you couldn't pin your hope on anything other than the relay teams. However you look at it, it's troubling for this sport.

Not on plan for me!

A race plan with a second lap of 71 seconds isn't a brilliant race plan in my view. It can play into the strength of the sprinters. Her running in the last 400m was strong, she went a bit fast on the final bend which took a bit out of her. She was unlucky, gave it all she had but I didn't think the race plan was brilliant.

GB's Muir misses out on medal in dramatic finish

Kenya's Faith Kipyegon won the women's 1500m at the World Championships as Britain's Laura Muir was edged into fourth place at London Stadium.

The Scot, 24, was overtaken by South Africa's Caster Semenya on the line for bronze, with Jennifer Simpson of the US taking silver.

Thank goodness for Mo!

Party in Kenya

Caster all in!

Caster Semenya, that is the hardest we have ever seen her work. She threw herself over the line, you could see the exhaustion on her face. I'm not sure what that will do for her and the 800m.

Muir: 'I'm making steps'

Laura Muir
BBC

Briton Laura Muir, who finished fourth in the 1500m, talking to BBC Sport: "It's fourth. I gave it everything I could. I tied up in the last 15 yards. I gave it everything, considering the disruption I've had this year. I knew it was close. It happened so late in the race. I couldn't react, but I wouldn't have been able to because I was so tired.

"I executed the race plan like I wanted to do. I was really happy how I ran the race.

"I'm making steps. I was fifth at the last Worlds and fourth this time - hopefully I'll make another step.

"I'm pretty sure the 5,000m is still on the cards this week. I'm inexperienced in the 5k so I don't know if I'll get a medal. I'll see how I feel after today."

Faith Kipyegon won the Olympics with another well-judged race last year, with Sifan Hassan fifth again.

That was close!

Sifan Hassan looked nailed on for at least silver with 30m to go and faded fast, Simpson and Semenya timed their kicks to perfection.

Laura Muir says in her BBC interview that she ran the exact race she planned to, taking it out hard and easing off a touch in the second lap. She did what she wanted - she just ran out of gas in the last few metres.

Matthew Hufford: Laura Muir was so unlucky tonight , this World Championship is not going the way the GB team would of liked

Gareth Hancock: Gutted for Laura Muir there. So close to a medal.

'I was boxed in'

Women's 1500m final

Laura Weightman speaks to BBC Sport: "I just wanted to prove I can mix it with the world's best but I'm also still disappointed. I was a bit boxed in. To finish sixth, I think it's given me huge relief, to think I can be quicker and be more competitive in these races."

'It nearly paid off for Muir'

Paula Radcliffe

Women's marathon world record holder on BBC TV

Regarding Muir's tactics, it's so hard when you're in that situation and racing - you're the only one who can make those decisions. It nearly paid off.

Women's 1500m final

Caster Semenya was nowhere with 200m to go, maybe sixth or seventh, but finished so well.

WHAT a finish from Jenny Simpson too, she ghosted in on the inside in the last 50m or so to take silver. Canny.

'Muir will win a global medal'

Brendan Foster

Olympic medallist and BBC commentator on BBC One

Laura Muir should be disappointed and she will be disappointed. She's a great athlete. She will win a global medal.

Women's 1500m final

That's why the 1500m is such a good event to watch. The winning time of 4:02:59 has been bettered by nine athletes in the field this year alone, but it's not always about times. Laura Muir tried to control the race from the front all the way.

Laura Muir was so close. When you have the medal snatched away it's gut-wrenching. Gut-wrenching.

Lactic pain

When that lactic comes, how difficult is it, what can you do? Wow.

Women's 1500m final

Laura Muir fourth and Laura Weightman sixth. A brilliant effort, if not quite good enough for a medal.

'Heartbreak'

Women's 1500m final

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

Every one of the athletes that should have been on the podium ran someone else's race.

Muir wound it up and she just ran out of legs in those final 20 minutes. The master tactician of Jenny Simpson of the USA again gets on the podium.

Two Brits in the top six is phenomenal but Laura Muir in that fourth position, that is heartbreak, absolute heartbreak. The world record holder finished 12th. That's where we are at with this event.

Women's 1500m final

Faith Kipyegon kicked and went for gold from a way out and was able to hang on, Laura Muir responded and looked set for at least a bronze all the way, but Caster Semenya, finishing strongly, pipped her to bronze.

Jenny Simpson was second. Great run.

MUIR FOURTH

Laura Muir in third, there's another kick. This is fast from Sifan Hassan...

Women's 1500m final

A 71-second second lap. Playing into Caster Semenya's hands? Now the move comes. Sifan Hassan kicks...

There's the bell. Laura Muir maybe third with a lap to go.

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

Not ridiculously quick early on. 65 second for lap one, that's about 4 minutes and three second pace. I think Laura Muir will try to turn the screw...

Women's 1500m final

Controlled pace so far, it's starting to slow down though...

Faith Kipyegon moves to the shoulder of Laura Muir. They are all packed in, this is going to be all about the kick.
