Gold medal - Yassine Gharbi

Men's 200m T54 final

That's it - no medals for Britain on day five at the London Stadium.

Yassine Gharbi of Tunisia storms to a championship record victory in 24.86 seconds.

Silver goes to Kenny van Weeghel of the Netherlands and Leo Pekka Thati takes bronze.

Britain's Richard Chaissaro rallied in the home straight but he had to settle for fourth place, ahead of compatriot Nathan Maguire who comes in sixth.

Maguire does come up with a personal best of 25.86 seconds, though.

The final race

Men's 200m T54 final (21:45 BST)

Last up tonight there are not one but two Brits gunning for a medal: Nathan Maguire and Richard Chaissaro in the men's 200m T54 final.

Chiassaro has had to shake off a few problems from his race last night. He was coming up the inside of the pack in the 800m when he clashed with eventual winner Marcel Hug of Switzerland.

The 35-year-old, who looked to have damaged his arm, recovered to cross the line but was then disqualified. The race will be rerun on Friday without Chiassaro involved.

"I'm a bit sore," he told BBC Radio 5live earlier. "I've watched it back a few times now. It was a 50/50 collision and it wasn't avoidable.

"I think the decision [to rerun] is a bit harsh. Anybody who had made a mistake, with a pack so tight, would have caused that crashed. But I'm happy they get to re-run it because of the guys I took out."

Maguire, meanwhile, progressed to this final as the third qualifier after Saichon Konjen of Thailand was disqualified from the heats.

Looking towards Tokyo

Britain's Sabrina Fortune spoke to BBC Radio 5 live earlier on, after finishing sixth in the T20 shot put: "I've had niggles and injuries. Sometimes you can't have everything. I'm always excited - we've got Tokyo yet and so much more to come."

When you finally get to change your twitter bio...

So happy I can finally change my twitter bio so say world champion! Thanks for all the support!

Richard Whitehead on 5 live

Britain's Richard Whitehead, the T42 200m world champion, has been speaking to BBC Radio 5 live about taking bronze in last night's 100m race.

"I am a perfectionist," he said. "I put a lot of effort into my running. I pushed out great but I got left behind a little bit. With my style with the straight leg, I was always going to struggle. But I sneaked on to the podium. I can't complain too much but I wanted to be at the top of the podium to prove a point."

'We're all one accident away from being in this kind of position'

Earlier we were discussing the switch between able-bodied and disability sport.

British long jumper Luke Sinnott spoke to BBC Radio 5 live earlier on about how he came into para-athletics, after losing both his legs while on duty in Afghanistan.

"Before I got injured, the last Paralympic Games was in Beijing," he said. "I remember catching a bit of it and thinking 'ah, good on them'. I never thought that two years later I would be in the same boat as a lot of them.

"We're all one accident and one illness away from being in this kind of position. The fact you can see all these people do all these amazing things with limited range of body movement, it's a fantastic thing to see. I hope in years to come that other countries show the same support to these athletes that we do in Great Britain."

The landscape of legacy

Chris Osborne

BBC Sport at London Stadium


The five hours between the morning and evening session fly by each day, with athletes available to interview and medal ceremonies going on.

But today I managed to squeeze in a run and headed through the heart of the Olympic Park and towards the arterial stadiums used during London 2012.

The green space expands for miles and it's superb to see so many cyclists, runners and dog walkers, as well as families using the playgrounds.

And with the virtues of Olympic/Paralympic legacy ringing in my ears I headed over the to the Lee Valley Hockey Stadium, optimistic there would be clubs, or schools or athletes whacking balls about on the blue synthetic surface.

Maybe I was misguided or just timed it badly but the place was silent and vacant. The pitch looked in good nick though.

'It's a complete dream to be here'

Britain's Polly Maton spoke to BBC Radio 5 live after finishing fifth in the T46/47 100m: "I’m quite happy, the time wasn’t great but I’ve had calf problems the last couple of days. You just try and be in the moment and forget about it.

"It’s a complete dream to be here - I was here at London 2012 and I came back for the grand prix in later years. It’s so great to be in the stadium and running.

"Thanks to the faith in British Athletics and funding I’ve been able to progress at a faster pace than expected. I’m really looking forward to coming back out for the long jump."

Young's London adventure

Women's 100m T47

Deja Young is celebrating after adding another a second world gold to her collection.

"I feel pretty great," said the 100m T47 defending champion. "I had a rough year this year and I’m excited to go from here. I wasn’t going to run this year so to achieve everything I wanted to was amazing. I’m here until the 24th so I’m going to explore London now."

Athlete spotting

Chris Osborne

BBC Sport at London Stadium

One of the coolest things about having 1,000 athletes all lodging around the Stratford area of London is that a brief stroll through the Westfield shopping centre becomes a game of spot the competitor.

We saw Jonnie Peacock in the food section of M&S the other day. And today the Netherlands' sprint superstar Marlou van Rhijn was chowing down at Jamie Oliver's.

The importance of gloves


These are Brent Lakatos' helmet and gloves, which he left on the floor while he went to have a chat with someone.

It turns out the type of gloves make a big difference to the type of race, as he tells BBC Radio 5 live.

"With the soft gloves you get much better grip when you're accelerating. But they lose a lot of energy. so in the longer distances the hard gloves work better."

Lakatos avoids a 'butt-kicking'

Brent Lakatos

Canada's Brent Lakatos on BBC Radio 5 live after winning the T53 400m: "I have a little headache and can't breathe through my nose but I gave it everything. It feels amazing to win this. I went to Rio full of confidence but didn't win. l got my butt kicked a couple of times."

Maton in fifth

Women's 100m T47

British teenager Polly Maton finishes fifth in the 100m T47 - among a pack of other racers.

Defending champions Deja Young looked in no danger of losing that gold medal. The American crosses the line in 12.39 seconds, ahead of Alicja Fiodorow of Poland and Lu Li of China.

Maton will be back in action in T47 long jump at the weekend.

Clegg's record stays intact

World record holder Libby Clegg is in the crowd tonight and she's breathed a sigh of relief as no-one has beaten her time in the T11 100m.

Britain's Clegg is out injured at the moment and told BBC Radio 5live: "It's really frustrating. It would have been nice to compete but I wouldn't be at my best. It's such a shame I'm missing out on the atmosphere. A home crowd really makes a difference. I'm rehabbing really well. I'm not going to race the rest of the season but then I'll be back in training."

Next up...

Women's 100m T47 final (20:55 BST)

We're back on Brit watch as Polly Maton goes in the women's 100m T47 final.

Maton is an amputee athlete who was born without part of her right arm and was spotted at a talent event at the age of 14.

She made her World Championship debut on her 16th birthday in the long jump and was a multi-discipline athlete in Rio, when she added the 100m to her repertoire.

Maton is being billed as one to watch in Tokyo 2020. Remember the name...

The crowd are engrossed in the T13 high jump, for athletes with impaired vision.

American Isaac Jean-Paul has just set a third world record in three consecutive jumps - this one of 2.17m - and he had the whole stadium behind him. The third was met with a humongous roar.

Smyth celebrates second gold


More from Jason Smyth, who had a moment with his wife Elise and his daughter: "It's important to have this moment with family. Those people are the most important in my life. Even though these moments are incredible my family will always be there and I'm so lucky to have such a supportive family.

"I first came on the scene in 2005 and won golds all the way, I really would love to continue that. I just want to be the best I can be and that's what drives me."

Men's 400m T11

So after the tumble in the men's 400m T11, it's been confirmed that Timothee Adolphe and Daniel Silva have both been disqualified.

So we only have two finishes in this race - Puigdevall Descarrega takes gold and Dongdong Di takes silver.

Gold medal - Brent Lakatos

Men's 400m T53 final

It's a second gold for Brent Lakatos!

He's pushed all the way by his Thai rival Pongsakorn Paeyo but the Canadian gets over the line first in 47.56 seconds - a Championship record.

Paeyo gets silver and Pierre Fairbank of France takes bronze.

'It's 5,000 hours of training to run a 10-second race'

Jason Smyth on BBC Radio 5 live, after winning his second gold in the T13 200m: "Incredible. Today you actually get to enjoy it. In the 100m on Sunday I knew I was back out again and had to rein it in. I'm delighted to be back in London. I wish we could have Worlds in London every time.

"I've worked it out over a four-year cycle it's 5,000 hours of training to run a 10-second race. But these moments are what make the hard work worth it."

A Paralympic power couple

Men's 400m T53 final (20:35 BST)

Racing in the men's 400m T53 final is Brent Lakatos of Canada, who has dominated wheelchair racing for years.

At the age of six, Lakatos was involved in a freak ice-skating accident, and a blood clot formed on his spine that left his legs paralysed.

At first he turned to wheelchair basketball as his sport but soon he got the bug for the track and has now raced for his country at three Paralympic Games.

He won bronze in this event in Rio but also took gold in the 100m, having picked up three silvers in London.

Lakatos is married to British world champion Stefanie Reid, who picked up gold in the T44 long jump in London on Saturday.

They must have an incredible trophy cabinet at home...

Men's 400m T11

A proper hearbreaking moment in the men's 400m T11 Final - featuring visually impaired runners.

Daniel Silva - the world record holder from Brazil - slowed down just a few metres before the line when in the silver medal position.

It looks like Timothee Adolphe of France is going to take gold...but then he stumbles and seems to be pulled over the line by his guide.

This will go down as an unofficial race, we think, for now. The officials will be looking at it.


The runners

Chris Osborne

BBC Sport at London Stadium


It wouldn't be a London-based multi-day event if there weren't hundreds of volunteers lining the streets, paths and gantries in and around the stadium.

For the London 2017 events of Para-athletics and IAAF World Championships they are called Runners - and there are hoards of them.

From left to right, Alice, Chris and David have been welcoming and high-fiving thousands of spectators.

Alice said she wanted to get involved because she's a runner and wanted to feel part of an athletics event, while Chris said the spirit of volunteering encouraged her.

What does a blind 100m sound like?

Ever wondered what a guide says to a blind 100m sprinter during the race?

Jerome Avery, the guide of American world champion David Brown, re-enacts the whole race and it sounds amazing.

'Strapping on blades was one of the best things I ever did'

Men's T42 long jump

Luke Sinnott spoke to BBC Radio 5 live about his personal best in his final jump: "I really had to go into a deep, dark place to get what I needed for that last jump. I knew if I didn't put something on the board in that last jump then I'd be very disappointed."

Sinnott on competing at his first major event: "I can't believe I'm here. Those days you wake up and feel fate dealt you a bad hand, it just goes to show that if you take what's handed to you and you turn it around then you can become part of amazing stuff like this.

"There's a sensitive tipping point where you either end up here or you end up feeling sorry for yourself. Strapping a pair of blades was one of the best things I ever did."

Sinnott makes impressive debut

Men's T42 long jump

Luke Sinnott's story is worth knowing.

The 36-year-old lost both legs in 2011, when an improvised explosive device detonated while he was on duty in Afghanistan.

He was invited to be part of the closing ceremony at the London 2012 games (you may remember him climbing a flagpole) and has now become a fully-fledged GB para-athlete.

He intended to compete at Rio 2016 in sailing but decided to switch to long jump. And on his world championship debut here in London today, he came agonisingly to making the podium.

Sinnott's first three jumps were chalked off for being over the mark. On his final attempt, he landed a PB of 6.15m and was just 10cms from taking the bronze.

The switch from disability sport to able-bodied

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

It's happened for a long time - at pretty much every Olympics in fact. I think it's much easier for someone who's visually impaired to switch over. But with prosthetics it's so much more complicated.

How the classification works

Each athletics event is given a code, made up of one letter and two numbers, which is called a classification. It tells you more about the type of disability the athletes in that event have.

  • The first letter will either be T or F: T is for track (running and jumping events) and F is for field (throwing events).
  • The first number, from 1 to 5, tells you the impairment type: 1. Visual impairment 2. Intellectual impairment 3. Co-ordination impairment 4. Limb deficiencies and short stature 5. Impaired muscle power or range of movement.
  • The second number ranges from 1 to 8 and designates the level of impairment, with 1 being the most impaired.

Tanni Grey Thompson’s guide to the games.

Meet the fastest Paralympian in history

Men's 200m T13 final (19:55 BST)

He's been referred to as Northern Ireland's answer to Usain Bolt.

And now Jason Smyth is aiming to add yet another gold medal to his already impressive haul.

The visually-impaired athlete was a double Paralympic champion at this stadium in 2012 and has a career best of 10.22 seconds in able-bodied competition, and a world record of 10.46 for Paralympic competition.

Smyth, 30, has been unbeaten at Paralympic level since beginning his international career at the 2005 European Championships.

He was fastest in qualifying for this event yesterday, as well. Ominous.

Medal table latest

It's tight at the top.

Great Britain, the USA and China all have 11 golds each.

But it's China who are in first place as it stands, as they have more silver medals under their belt.

Coming into the evening session, GB have 11 golds, two silvers and seven bronze to bring their total to 20.

Tanni's predictions

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

11-time Paralympic champion

It's been fantastic. Not just on the field but the crowds have been noisy, which has made a big difference. I've set GB quite a high target of 37 medals. It would really help if every athlete that went out there now won a gold
