The 5 live team will be led byJonathan Overend at the London Stadium, alongside commentator Ed Harry and summarisers Ali Curbishley and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson. JJ Chalmers will be grabbing interviews in the mixed zone.

And don't forget Chris Osborne, who will be bringing you the best colour and atmosphere from London Stadium.

People to watch? Well, how about double Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock, who missed the World Championships two years ago through injury, so goes into the T44 100m final with a point to prove.

'Henson inspires me'


Richard Whitehead speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "It wasn't the best start. I forgot my second starting block, which wasn't great. After the turn I put on the afterburners. I look at Dave Henson (who won bronze in the same race and was injured in the military) and he inspires me to keep going."

Will he retire now?

"Ask me after the 100m."

London Stadium is unglued.

They bought a ticket for tonight to see this man and Richard Whitehead has not let them down.

Dave Henson joins him on a lap of honour after taking bronze.

Hollie Arnold has just broken her own world record and shrugs it off like she's just chucked a stick for her dog at the park.

So cool. So relaxed.

Arnold breaks world record

That roar you just heard?

That was for Hollie Arnold. She's broken her own world record. It's a huge 43.02m throw in the javelin. Surely another gold for Great Britain?

On your marks...

Lots of faces of excited fans covered in union jack flags. Supporters applauding, racers on the line.

It is time for 40-year-old Richard Whitehead in the men's 200m T42 final.

A third GB gold?

A third gold for Great Britain?

And again! The crowd spot it this time as Hollie Arnold breaks the championship record again by going 42.13m - and those who did miss it get another chance to cheer when it's bellowed over the announce system.

Brit Arnold's world record stands at 43.01m - it's in serious jeopardy tonight.

Gold-en oldie?

It's almost time for Richard Whitehead.

Paralympic and world champion Whitehead says he was told he was "too old for athletics" at 35.

Arnold setting the pace

It's another huge throw from Hollie Arnold.

Her second attempt is better than her first. This time it's 42.13 - she's got gold in her sights in the F46 javelin.

Chris Osborne

BBC Sport at London Stadium

The crowd are being spoilt - they're so into this men's T11 5,000m final that they almost missed Hollie Arnold breaking the championship record in the F46 javelin.

The attention will be back on the Brit soon enough.

Championship record for Hollie


Hollie Arnold has just thrown a championship record 41.38 in her first attempt in the F46 javelin final.

She's gone straight to the top of the leaderboard.
