You can catch them at 13:10-14:00 BST.

Repeated on Monday 13:00-14:00 on BBC Two.

Bye, bye Mo

Who will fly the flag for Britain now that Mo Farah is leaving the track?

There's a big gap to fill in the team.

But what will he do on the road?

Exciting times ahead for Mo...


Jamaica win

4x100m relay

Elaine Thompson did not run in the world championships relay and she just showed how much Jamaica missed her.

A storming last leg from the Olympic champion who overhauls Daryll Neita to claim victory over Great Britain by just one hundredth of a second, 41.85 to 41.86.

Britain's time was just nine hundredths of a second away from the national record - this quartet have plenty more to come.

Next up

4x100m relay

Last up, is the traditional 4x100m relay.

Great Britain's dream team of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita are here.

The world champion United States team are here as are bronze medallists Jamaica with Elaine Thompson.

Vadlejch wins

Men's javelin

Czech Jakub Vadlejch, silver medallist in London, goes one better in the Diamond League final as he claims the javelin title with a throw of 88.50m.

Makwala wins

Men's 400m

Victory in 43.95 with five press-ups for just desserts as Isaac Makwala romps home.

His job was made a whole lot easier though by Steven Gardiner's stumble and stack out of the blocks which left his main rival sprawling inside the first five metres.

Next up

Men's 200m

Botswana's Isaac Makwala turned up for the 400m final in London but was turned away at the door with the IAAF deciding that he was too much of a health rish after coming down with a bad case of Southwark belly.

Bahamas' Steven Gardiner took silver behind Wayde van Niekerk, who is absent with illness.

Let's see how this plays out..

Pearson wins

100m hurdles

Sally Pearson does a little hop of joy as the big screen finally reveals that she has managed to hold off the challenge of American Sharika Nelvis.

Both the front two were given the same time - 12.55 - but Pearson's more gymnastic dip took it.

Next up

100m hurdles

There were few overseas world champions as popular as Sally Pearson at London 2017.

The Australian recovered from a horrific wrist break to take the world title.

There is no Kendra Harrison, but Jazmin Stowers, the second fastest in the world this year who failed to get through the US trials, is here.

World silver medallist Dawn Harper-Nelson is also there as the second prong of a five-fronted US challenge.

Farah wins!

Men's 5000m


What a finish!

Mo Farah was clinging on with his very fingernails down the 100m. The hounds of hell were right on his heels, Muktar Edris flung himself at the line, Paul Chelimo tried to squeeze through the narrowest of gaps, but none of them could unseat the Olympic champion.

Farah wins by four hundredths of a second on his last track outing. Outstanding entertainment as always.

One lap to go

Men's 5000m

Mo Farah takes the bell in the lead with Ethiopia's Kejelcha with him...

Two laps to go

Men's 5000m

Mohammad Ahmed leads with two laps to go, but Mo Farah is right on his shoulder, checking out the rest of the field's positions on the big screen as he hears the bell.

Three laps to go

Men's 5000m

Suddenly the race has come off the gas.

There is a lack of enthusiasm at the front and there is a lot of looking around at each other as they coast through.

This is surely playing into Mo Farah's hands with his formidable kick and three laps to go.

Farah biding his time

Men's 5,000m

It is a toasty, if not red-hot, pace in the men's 5000m. The field have just come through 2000m in 5.13 with Mo Farah tucked away in midfield.

Manyonga leads

Men's long jump

Manyonga wins World long jump gold

World champion Luvo Manyonga has struck out to an early lead with a leap of 8.31m.

Congrats CJ from... another CJ

What a great run by @Chijindu_Ujah wins his first @WeltklasseZH with 9.97, beating a class field! #winner #DiamondLeague #athletics #british

Men's 5000m

They have just gone through the first 400m in around 60 seconds.

Would you still be alongside the great man?

Watch below as poor unsuspecting members of the public attempt to match Farah's 5000m pace on a treadmill.

London 2017: People try running at Mo Farah's 5000m pace

Watch the World Championship 5,000m final

This is the defeat that Mo Farah is attempting to avenge.

Muktar Edris of Ethiopia, who beat Farah in the London 5,00m final and celebrated with his own Mobot, is here.

Paul Chelimo of the USA, world championship bronze medallist, is also present.

GB's Farah ends career with world silver in 5,000m

Ujah wins

Men's 100m

The biggest win of his career and a whopping great payday for Great Britain's CJ Ujah who leans to pip Ben Youssef Meite to win in a season's best of 9.97.

You can't say he doesn't deserve it either. That is his fifth win of the season on the Diamond League circuit.

American Ronnie Baker was third and Olympic champ Justin Gatlin was only fourth in 10.04 - perhaps some fatigue after beating Bolt?

Adam Gemili was down in eighth in 10.13.

Next up

Men's 100m final

World champion Justin Gatlin is in lane three and gets a far healthier reception than he did in victory in London as he is announced to the crowd.

Also in the field is Jamaica's Asafa Powell with CJ Ujah and Adam Gemili representing Britain.

Usain Bolt was last spotted in a nightclub in Mykonos.

Barshim wins

Men's high jump

World champion Mutaz Essa Barshim takes the high jump title with a leap of 2.36m.

Syria's Majd Eddin Ghazal was second with Bohdan Bondarenko of Ukraine third.

Britain's Robbie Grabarz was fourth after failing at 2.28m.

Semenya wins

Women's 800m

She just makes it look so easy.

Caster Semenya puts her foot down with 250m to go and neither Sifan Hassan or Francine Niyonsaba could stay with her.

A winning time of 1:55.84, which is about three quarters of a second off her winning time in London.

Next up

Women's 800m

Gold for Semenya in the 800m final

Next up, world and Olympic champion Caster Semenya in her specialist subject.

It will take a spectacular run to upset the odds and deny the South African the big novelty cheque.

If anyone has got it in them it might be Francine Niyonsaba of Burundi who has two wins on the Diamond League circuit this season.

Coe presses the flesh

Merlene Ottey is 57. She competed in the 2012 European Championships for Slovenia.

Good to meet so many great champions @Diamond_League #Zurich - Lars, Marlene, Markus, Thomas, Werner 👏👏👏👏👏

McMaster wins

Men's 400m hurdles

Kyron McMaster looked the class of the field powering clear after Norway's Karsten Warholm faltered at the eighth barrier to take victory in 48.07.

It was a new national record for Warholm regardless in 48.22 seconds. Kerron Clement was fourth with Jack Green sixth.

Next up

Men's 400m hurdles

Norway's Warholm wins gold in the 400m hurdles

Norway's Karsten Warholm was one of the surpise stars of London 2017 as he unseated American Olympic champion Kerron Clement in dramatic style.

Watch out for British Virgin Island's Kyron McMaster though who is the fastest man in the world this year, but failed to make the final in London after he was too eager out of the blocks in a heat.

Britain's Jack Green is out in lane eight.

Jebet wins

Women's 3000m steeplechase


The second fastest-time in history!

Extraordinary running from Ruth Jebet of Qatar who powers clear of Beatrice Chepkoech to come within two and half seconds of her own world record.

Where was that sort of surge in London where she finished fifth?

World champion Emma Coburn was down in fourth.

Farah goes at 20:14 BST

So, why is Mo Farah ending his track career in Zurich rather than letting things lie after a domestic farewell at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting on Sunday?

The sentimentalists might say it is where he broke the 13-minute barrier in the men’s 5,000m as the first British athlete in 2010, and he was crowned double European champion four years later.

Realists might follow the money.

Tonight, 16 Diamond League champions will be crowned. Unlike in previous years, there is no maths based on points collected over the season. This year, your efforts at previous meetings only earn you a pass into a straight shoot-out final.

According to LetsRun, first place in any of tonight's finals comes with a hefty £39,000 prize money - five times the amount usually on offer.

Fourth for Grabarz

Next up

Women's 3000m steeplechase

The new world champion is not from East Africa, but the United States.

Emma Coburn will attempt to follow up her success in London with the Diamond League crown.

Kenya’s Beatrice Chepkoech, who came fourth despite forgetting to go over one of the water jumps and having to circle back in London,may be the main threat.

However a return to form for world-record holder Ruth Jebet or world leader Celiphine Chespol could throw those predictions out the window.

Miller-Uibo wins

Women's 200m

Shaunae Miller-Uibo came from way, way down in the final 50m, marching down Dafne Schippers, Marie-Josee Ta Lou and Elaine Thompson to win in a new Bahamas national record of 21.88.

A small bit of consolation for Miller-Uibo who dramatically saw 400m gold go down the gurgler after she tripped in London.

Next up

Women's 200m

An almighty scrap coming up in the women's 200m, where Jamaica's Elaine Thompson who took both the 100m and 200m crown in Rio, comes up against Dafne Schippers, who won her second world title in London.

These two don't really get along.

Watch out for Marie-Josee Ta Lou of the Ivory Coast, who picked up silver medals at both the sprint distances in London.

Farah tries out the high jump

A definite end-of-term vibe to Mo Farah in Zurich this week. World high jump champion Mutaz Essa Barshim posted a video of Farah having a bash at his event.

Put it this way, he doesn't seem likely to switch those marathon plans anytime soon.

Cheruiyot wins

Men's 1500m

Timothy Cheruiyot

Timothy Cheruiyot takes revenge for his defeat in London, powering clear with 150m to go and staying out there despite the best efforts of Silas Kiplagat in second and Elijah Manangoi.

The winning time was 3:33.93. Britain's Jake Wightman was down in seventh in 3:35.25 - a little over a second off his season's best.

Next up...

Men's 1500m final

Kenya's Elijah Motonei Manangoi is the new world champion and also the fastest man in the world this year, on the back of a 3:28.80 in Monaco.

Compatriot Timothy Cheruiyot is expected to be his main challenge.

Britain's Jake Wightman - who won the Diamond League meeting in Oslo - earlier this season is also in the mix.

Wet in the Weltklasse

It has been whacking it down in Switzerland...

Never mind spikes, this was wellies weather earlier in the day.

It has dried off now, but the clouds still loom ominously overhead.
