World champion Dafne Schippers: "I fought for that. I have worked so hard this year so I am so happy. It's so cool. Two times in a row is very special too.

"It was so so cool I was walking around and saw all the orange so it was amazing."

Asher-Smith's roomie congratulates her pal

SO SO proud of @dinaashersmith 😭 been through so much this year and to bounce back like this 🔥🔥🔥❤️🇬🇧😩

What now for Schippers?

Women's 200m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

Dafne Schippers' personal best is 21.63 seconds so she has got to get back there but that is a tall order.

She will probably want to improve on her 100m so that is where I think she will want to go next.

USA lead the way

That's five fourth-placed finishes for Great Britain now. This table could look a lot different.

USA v the rest of the world.

Team mates congratulate DAS

Seriously impressive performance by @dinaashersmith to have achieved what she has at this world champs after that nasty injury. WOW!!

Wow 🔥@dinaashersmith that was something. Well done #London2017

Tears from Dafne Schippers as she runs to embrace family in the crowd. What an effort from the woman who won bronze in the heptathlon just four years ago.

'Schippers did a fantastic job'

Women's 200m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

An amazing race. We knew Dina Asher-Smith was going to get out quickly. She ran the right type of race. A fantastic race for her.

We also knew Schippers was amazing on the home stretch but Ta Lou gave her a great race. Schippers did a fantastic job of not tightening up at the end there.

So close for Asher-Smith

Women's 200m final

Dina Asher-Smith on BBC One: "I didn't know I was in that shape and to see I missed out on a bronze by like that, I am frustrated but then quite happy that I've run that fast having broken my foot this year.

"I was so happy to be here and just told myself to go out fast, the crowd were getting louder and louder so I knew I was doing well, and I kept going for it. So close!

"To run 22.2 is faster than I ran last season and close to my PB so I am over the moon. We've have had a lot of fourth places but they've come from young people who will be at many championships to come."

Colin Jackson

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV

Dina Asher-Smith is something incredible. The amount she has had to battle, both mentally and physically, is unbelievable.

22.22 seconds! I cannot describe to everybody how impressive that was.

She will be disappointed but how much work she has missed over the summer with the broken foot. She loves this event.

Unbelievable performance through the rounds.

Another fourth for Great Britain!

Dafne Schippers runs a stunning bend to eke out a lead and while she ties up in the last 30m, she just has enough to see off the challenge of Marie-Josee Ta Lou and a fast-finishing Shaunae Miller-Uibo!

Dina Asher-Smith was fifth in Beijing, fifth in Rio, fifth in London? After an injury-hit season that would be a good result.

Olympic champion Elaine Thompson of Jamaica opted to skip this event, seemingly leaving the way open for flying Dutchwoman Dafne Schippers to defend her title. Ivory Coast's Marie Josee Ta Lou won silver in the 100m final and looked good in her 200m semi-final to qualify third fastest.

Can Shaunae recover?

Women's 200m final (21:50 BST)

Olympic 400m champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo, the fastest woman in the final, is bidding to recover from the disappointment of missing out on a 400m medal despite leading for most of the final. We thought she had injured herself but it appears she just stubbed her toe on the ground.

British record holder Dina Asher-Smith has overcome an injury-hit season to hit form and will hope to snatch a medal after running a season's best of 22.73 seconds to make the final.

'Kenya's dominance broken'

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live sports extra

The dominance of Kenya has been broken and the rest of the world is standing up and seeing this!

Kenya got bronze, but have you seen them walking off the track shaking their heads?

That's the first championship record of the week - that's what it took to beat the Kenyans. All credit, they gave it their all.

Emma Coburn has been the one that has upset a few podiums in the past, getting so close to that magical nine-minute barrier. She's been prepared to battle with the Kenyans and not let them dominate races.
