Mutaz Essa Barshim completes a world-leading 2.40m high jump

Barshim failed at 2.39m twice and elected to put it up to 2.40m - and look at the space between the bar and his body. He cleared it by miles. That's why people think he will break the world record.

That's what they came for.

Mo Farah's face told story down the back straight, calm and composed as Spain's Abel Mechaal gritting his teeth and slogged and lost ground.

Farah wins 3000m

Mo Farah on BBC One: "It's been an amazing week. I've had a little bit of downtime with the family to relax. The emotion was high and I had a lot of support from the home crowd.

"I was trying to think about winning the race and the rest of the field. This is what we dream of - having a home crowd cheer you on - and I want to thank everyone who has supported me and followed my journey.

"I never dreamed of becoming four times Olympic champion and a multi-world champion. All I ever dreamed of was competing for Britain.

"I just want to continue to see what I can do on the road, without having a target on my back, and just try to enjoy it without so much pressure."

BreakingMo Farah wins 3000m


It's a fairytale ending for Mo Farah on the British track.

His final race ends with a win in the 3000m in Birmingham.

The double Olympic champion does a quick Mo-Bot as he crosses the line in 7:38.64.

Steve Cram

BBC athletics commentator on BBC TV

Mo hasn't broken any world records but he's a winner, that's what he's become known for.

Men's 3000m

Here he comes...Mo starts to manoeuvre into the front pack.

The two Kenyan pacemakers are out in front, with Andrew Butchart of Britain just behind.

Sam Holloway: Enjoying watching Mo's last race on a UK track. Much less stressful than watching him live in London last weekend! Go, Mo!

Sarah Fitzpatrick: Go go Mo - thank you for all the memories

Just in case anyone mislaid their copy of the script, a sponsor's montage of Mo's training sweat and tears preceded the gun.

Even that was greeted with wild cheers.

Surely no-one dare poop the party?

Men's 3000m

Mo Farah stays near the back of the group on his first lap before steadily making his way forward.

Cool, calm and collected so far.

'I want to forget about Mo'

Birmingham Grand Prix

As of next year, we'll be seeing Mo Farah v.2

The 34-year-old is escaping the track and switching to road racing instead.

Today's meeting will be his last track race in Britain, and he'll finish up in Zurich at the end of the season.

Farah has previously name-checked the New York, Boston, Berlin and London Marathons as prestige races that he was considering competing in next year.

"In my mind, I want to forget about Mo," he said. "I want to go start fresh."

Watch his full interview below.

I want to forget about Mo - Farah on his future

Men's 3000m

With the women's 400m complete, it means there's only one race to go.

Let's go, Mo!

Women's 400m

Both Allyson Felix and Phyllis Francis are beaten!

It's world silver medalist Salwa Naser of Bahrain who takes the win with a magnificent dip over the line.

It's so close! Naser clocks 50.59 seconds, with Felix in second with 50.63 and Courtney Okolo in third with 50.66

Men's high jump

When Steve Backley says you're a field star for the future, you know it's been a good day.

It's 18-year-old Tom Gale who's received the praise. The Briton has finished third in the men's high jump.

Women's 400m

There's a delay to the women's 400m final because of a technical fault with the timing system.

There are cables and tech guys all over the place. One of the assistants goes tumbling over as he tries to get the new system in place.

No, I didn't laugh out loud. I wouldn't be that cruel.

Women's 1500m

A short while ago, Ethiopia's Dawit Seyaum won the women's 1500m in 4:01.36, with Winny Chebet of Kenya and Rababe Arafi of Morocco in second and third respectively.

Britain's Laura Weightman finished eighth while compatriots Sarah McDonald and Katie Snowden came 13th and 14th.

Felix v Francis

Women's 400m

When you talk about legends of the track, Allyson Felix has to be among them.

The American has won six Olympic titles and 11 gold medals on the World Championship stage.

The London Stadium was left stunned earlier this month when Felix was beaten by compatriot Phyllis Francis in this event. The pair go head-to-head again today.

Lovely end-of-term feeling to the high jump as Mutaz Essa Barshim attempts what would be a world-leading 2.40m and his rivals join the rhythmic clapping.

And the celebrations as there - Qatari goes over!

James Stevenson: Didn't realise Phil Jones was retiring. He's the best at the post-race athletics interview. Have always admired his work

Jenifer Moore: God, first we lose Brendan now Phil! Very sad to hear he's retiring too.Too soon!

Mace Windu: Sorry to hear that this is Phil Jones's last day of interviewing the athletes.

Phil Jones, the legendary trackside reporter for BBC athletics, is left a bit speechless as Team GB captain Eilidh Doyle gatecrashes his interview with the British 200m runners to present him with a leaving gift on his final show.

He looks stunned! A lovely moment.


What's it like to be a world champion?

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, part of GB's 4x100m relay gold-medal winning team, on BBC One: "It's a shame I couldn't put on a better performance. It's a learning experience about how to compete after a championship."

Danny Talbot: "It's been a strange week - we're not used to it! We've not been world champions before and there's so many things to deal with, but everyone has been so kind."

In PR terms it seems overcoming a bad case of the squits trumps beating the world.

Isaac Makwala gets a hearty cheer on the blocks while surprise London 2017 champion Ramik Guliyev's victory is greeted in far more muted fashion.

Men's 200m

World champion Ramil Guilyev of Turkey wins the men's 200m in 20.17 seconds, as his stunning season continues.

Issac Makwala was ahead on the bend but trailed off in the final few metres.

Ameer Webb of the USA is second and Aaron Brown from Canada gets a season's best of 20.30 seconds.

British duo Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake and Danny Talbot come fifth and sixth respectively.

World champion Guilyev wins the men's 200m

Elaine Thompson on BBC One: "It was great competing here and I wanted to pick myself up after the World Championships. Sometimes you have a bad day and don't execute the race but you have to move on and get winning again."

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV

The World Championships was a blip from Elaine Thompson. Here, she worked hard out of the blocks, Dina Asher-Smith was solid over the first 60m, but Thompson is beautiful to watch once she gets into her groove.

She stayed nice and relaxed and got another win under her belt but she will be scratching her head all season about the worlds.

Men's 200m

We saw half the squad compete earlier, now the rest of Team GB’s 4x100m gold medal winning quartet, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake and Danny Talbot, go in the men's 200m.

The duo take on world champion Ramil Guliyev and someone else you may have heard of during London 2017: Issac Makwala.

Yep, the guy who did a 200m solo run plus push-ups in the pouring rain after norovirus gate.

Makwala qualifies for the 200m semis

Women's 100m final

Elaine Thompson gets it!

The Olympic champion failed to get a medal at London 2017 but she's powered home in 10.93 in Birmingham.

Marie-Josee Ta Lou gets second and Jura Levy of Jamaica finishes third.

Britain's Dina Asher-Smith settles for fifth place with a 11.21 second finish.

Women's 100m final

It's women's 100m final time!

Five women in this race won World Championship medals in London this summer. It's a really strong field.

How Mo can you go?

BBC Sport, with the help of Liverpool John Moores University, asks members of the public to try running at Mo Farah's 5,000m pace. How long could you last?

Rather symbolic these race numbers that are being handed out at the gates.

Today is not so much about the competition as the commemoration of Mo Farah's medal-heavy career.


Men's 110m hurdles

The two big names top the bill!

American world record holder Aries Merritt holds off Sergey Shubenkov to finish first in 13.29 seconds.

Devon Allen of the USA comes third.

Andrew Pozzi from Team GB has to settle for sixth ahead of fellow Brit David King.
