My heart is broken - Makwala

Men's 200m final

Isaac Makwala, who came sixth in the 200m final, tells BBC Sport:

"The 400m was the one I put all my money on, the 200m I do sometimes for speed only. It's not like the 400m. I never use blocks, but I am happy I was in the final.

"I thought I could get a medal, but I ran yesterday two difficult races and it wasn't easy.

"I will leave the championships with my heart broken."

"I don't get the respect I deserve"

Wayde Van Niekerk: "I really feel I worked hard for tonight and I gave it my all. I have proven over and over I deserve what I have achieved.

"It's been a tough week. There are many people who don't think I deserve this.

"I work just as hard as every other competitor. I don't think I got the respect I deserved after the 400m but it's only the beginning and I will show my dominance.

"There was no secret - after my final, people said the results would have been the other way (if Makwala was in the final) but I am going to prove it over again and I thank god for this competition.

"I feel it's very unfair. It's not an overnight success. I have been coming through the rankings over the years.

"People are going to be angry but that is a competition".

Taylor wins it again

Hats off to Christian Taylor.

"It was a tough week," says Wayde van Niekerk who appears to have been affected by the whole furore around Isaac Makwala's 400m expulsion.

Men's 200m final

Wayde van Niekerk is very emotional after winning silver in the 200m race, in fact he breaks down during his BBC interview.

'You make it happen'

Ramil Guliyev: "I make it. I believe if you want something so much, you make it.

"The going was so hard. When you race, you need to make your job. You run at your maximum.

"First thought [when I crossed the line] I asked, 'am I first' second or third! Because when you run at your maximum, you only see straight - not left or right!"

Hi Time Magazine...

Women's 400m hurdles

Here's the moment Kori Carter won the 400m hurdles from way out in lane nine.

'I've let the nation down'

Men's 200m final

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake: "I am glad to come through healthy. I feel like I have let the nation down today. I know I had the calibre to get a medal. I wanted to win. That's all I thought about when I go out there.

"I felt like I left it all on the track. It just wasn't enough today.

"I learned a lot last year and sometimes you have to learn the hard way. I encourage everyone to get out there and get active. Great Britain is the "Mecca" of sport".

That's at least four fourth-placed finishes for British athletes...

'Not impressive times'

Men's 200m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

The times were not very impressive so the standard of the 200m has gone down a little bit. With Bolt, Gatlin and DeGrasse out it created a close race.

Makwala looked like he had a great start and then the fatigue set in.

Van Niekerk found something between yesterday and today to be able to take that silver medal.

Back yourself

Men's 200m final

A friend of mine who called Ramil Guliyev to win - but didn't back himself - tells me that you could get 9/1 on the Turkish athlete to win gold tonight.

Ramil Guliyev wins shock 200m

Men's 200m final

Ramil Guliyev and Karsten Warholm have served up two unlikely winners on the track in the last two nights. Guliyev can hardly believe it.

Well done Mitchell-Blake

Men's 200m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC One

He has had a long season in the American collegiate system this year so that is a great result for Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake.

No Bolt, no times?

Men's 200m final

Another 'slow' winning time at this championships. Usain Bolt won the 2015 final in 19.55 seconds, the 2013 final in 19.66, the 2011 final in 19.40, and the 2009 final in 19.19.

Men's 200m final

Colin Jackson

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC One

Ramil Guliyev has powered his way through and he has taken this title away from a class field.

The top three did something special here.

There was one one-thousandth of a second between silver and bronze.

Men's 200m final

Isaac Makwala, the man of the moment, ended up in sixth.

Men's 200m

That was so hard to call! You rarely see such a close race. Five men in a line.

Ramil Guliyev wins it in 20.09, Wayde van Niekerk and Jereem Richards given the same time of 20.11.

Gold medal - Ramil Guliyev

Men's 200m

He can't believe it! Turkey's first ever gold medal at the world championships as Ramil Guliyev causes an upset.

There were maybe six men in a line with 45m to go and Wayde van Niekerk is run out of it into second place, with Jereem Richards taking bronze.

It's another fourth for Britain and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake...

Silence.....then the gun!

'Feeling the fatigue'

Men's 200m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC One

I think Wayde Van Niekerk is feeling the fatigue and what's more, is he will see Issac Makwala on the outside lane.

Men's 200m final

Don't rule out Turkish runner Ramil Guliyev or Jereem Richards either in this one. Talent everywhere.

Men's 200m final

Wayde van Niekerk was looking leggy in the semi-finals, he had to come through as one of the fastest losers. He's a 400m specialist - but he's ran sub-10s for the 100m, sub-20s for the 200m and nearly sub-43s for the 400m!He's a miracle athlete.

Fast final?

Men's 200m final

Will we get a fast time out there? Not too many this week so far.

Isaac Makwala has run 19.77 this year, the best in the world. Usain Bolt's world record, for context, is 19.19.

In the absence of reigning champion Usain Bolt, Wayde van Niekerk will be aiming to complete a 200m-400m double. Isaac Makwala is also in the final after coming through a solo time trial, having initially been barred from competing because of a norovirus outbreak. Britain's Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake also goes.

Men's triple jump final

Christian Taylor looks very emotional at the end of that. He is champion of the world for a third time. Phenomenal.

'Carter didn't look good in the heats'

Women's 400m hurdles final

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

How dare I even challenge the Americans!

Kori Carter was pointing to her head. She hadn't looked impressive and not been able to string it together. But it's the magic of that lane nine.

Women's 200m semis

Here's a bouncing Dina Asher-Smith on her superb semi-final run.

Eilidh Doyle was eighth in a time of 55.71.

Gold medal - Kori Carter

Women's 400m hurdles

America 1-2! Kori Carter does indeed go out hard from lane nine, just like MJ predicted. Dalilah Muhammad was closing in hard and looked like she might get there but couldn't find enough, it's silver for her.

Ristananna Tracey takes bronze, running Zuzana Hejnova out of it.

Can anyone get Carter?

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC One

I can see a situation where Kori Carter could go out hard and they wouldn't be able to catch her, or we could see them trying to keep up and then lose her.

'Hejnova looks good for gold'

Women's 400m hurdles final

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

I wasn't a great talent at this event. I preferred it to 400m because you had a new target after clearing each barrier.

I think Hejnova will be thinking this is her gold to grab.

To see Doyle in lane two - I don't know in her head if this is worse or better than lane nine.

Women's 400m hurdles final

Zuzana Hejnova is looking for a hat-trick of world titles tonight. A huge ask.
