We will be back for day seven at 19:00 BST on Thursday, so until then bye for now.

Two more medals

So that is the end of day six and there have been another two medals - to bring the total to 22 - for Great Britain.

Maria Lyle won bronze in the women's 200m T35 event, before Sammi Kinghorn added a bronze in the women's 400m T53 race to the gold she had won earlier in the championships in the 200m.

Coming up tomorrow...

Stephen Miller dominated the F32 club throw in the late 1990s and early 2000s and will look to turn back the clock and build on his bronze in Rio (19:06 BST).

Hannah Cockroft's pursuit of the treble meets its third hurdle in the T34 400m (20:25) and world record holder Georgie Hermitage defends her T37 400m title (20:35).

Durand takes gold

Women's 100m T12

Cuba's Omara Durand, running with a guide, defends her world title as she wins the women's 100m T12, taking the gold in an fantastic time of 11.53 seconds.

What's it like to run a 100m when you can't see?

Women's 100m T12 (21:45 BST)

The last race of the day is the women's 100m T12, for visually-impaired athletes, with three of the four runners having a guide to help them.

Earlier this week, BBC Radio 5 live spoke to American David Brown and guide Jerome Avery, who won gold in the men's 100m T11 category.

Avery described what he would say to Brown during and after a 100m race. It is fascinating stuff and well worth a listen, which you can do below.

The sport has to grow and go to other countries - Smyth

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

.
.

There has been some talk of the next World Para-athletics Championships in 2019 being held in London again.

Ireland's Jason Smyth, who won gold in both the men's 100m and 200m T13 events, is not convinced it is the best idea.

He said: "As an athlete, you want the biggest crowds and excitement, it is easy to say 'come back to London every two years', but the sport has to grow and go to other countries.

"You hope when a sport goes to those countries it can change people's perspective of the sport."

Kinghorn's coach set for hair treat

Women's 400m T53 - Sammi Kinghorn wins bronze

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Some more quotes from Sammi Kinghorn, who added a bronze medal in the women's 400m T53 to a gold in the 200m earlier in the week.

Kinghorn, 21, described a pre-championships bet she had with coach Ian Mirfin, who is going to be sporting a very unusual haircut very soon.

"If I won a gold medal at the world championships I would be able to dye his hair any colour I wanted, so wait what I have in store for you," added Kinghorn.

'That was incredible - I loved it'

Women's 400m T53 - Sammi Kinghorn wins bronze

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Bronze medallist Sammi Kinghorn has just been talking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

She says: "I'm absolutely delighted. In Rio I was 50m behind, now I was in the mix in an event I was not expecting to do anything in, I can't believe it.

"My biggest strength is my sprint at the start. My coach has been incredible, he always trains us so we feel sick at the end of the session and makes us end with a sprint so I have him to thank for being able to hold on at the end.

"I am racing against girls that have been doing it a lot longer than me and it is a very technical sport. That was incredible racing, I loved it. The 400 was always going to be a lot tougher to medal, I do enjoy it but it is a pretty brutal event."

It was a hard race, Sammi decided she wanted a fast 200 and go out and challenge and get on the shoulder of the other athletes.

Maybe when she looks back at it she will think her first 200 was too quick as she couldn't attack off the bend.

Chelsea McClammer had a shocking start and came through in the last 40 or 50m for silver, but it was like she was asleep on the start.

Kinghorn takes bronze

Women's 400m T53

Great Britain's Sammi Kinghorn takes bronze in the women's 400m T53. The gold medallist from the 200m was in contention at the halfway mark, drops back but holds on to the bronze medal.

China's Zhou Hongzhuan takes the gold, with world record holder Chelsea McClammer of America coming second.

Angela Ballard of Australia finishes two hundredths of a second behind Kinghorn, but the Brit does enough for the 22nd medal of this championships for Britain and the second of the night.

'High hopes'

Women's 400m T53 (21:12 BST)

The reason we have such high hopes for Sammi Kinghorn is the manner she won the 200m, breaking her own world record.

'A dream come true'

Women's 400m T53 (21:12 BST)

Sammi Kinghorn has already had an unforgettable time at the World Para-athletics Championships with gold in the women's 200m T53, setting a new world record in the process.

"I honestly can't believe it - it's incredible," Kinghorn said. "I badly wanted a medal and to come away from a home games with a gold and a world record is a dream come true."

Kinghorn came into the event having won three European Championships gold medals in 2014 and a worlds bronze in 2015.

Can she make it a second gold medal here tonight?

'Happy, even though I didn't make the final'

Men's 400m T54 heats

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Great Britain's Nathan Maguire, who finished third in his heat in the men's 400m T54, but missed out on a place in tomorrow's final. has just been talking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

He said: "I felt really happy with that race, I felt really strong and even though I didn't make the final I'm happy.

"I raced my own race and tried to stick to what I knew. In my first race I was so nervous I threw up in the call room but now it's absolutely fine."

Algerian brothers Abdellatif and Fouad have just taken gold and silver respectively in the men's 1500m T13.

Nathan Maguire comes third in his heat, but it is not enough to qualify for the men's 400m T54 final.

Only the top two are guaranteed a spot and Maguire does not claim one of the places as a fastest loser.

There will be British interest in that final though, scheduled for 21:05 BST on Thursday, as Richard Chiassaro has another chance for a medal.

'He has to take a lot more risks'

Richard Chiassaro's start was not great, in the 800m he took a massive tumble, got run over and was lucky to not break any ribs.

He was being very careful, making sure he stayed in his lane. He is going to have to take a lot more risks (in the final) and has to go for it.

Chiassaro into final

Men's 400m T54 heats (final Thursday 21:05 BST)

It has not been a great week for Richard Chiassaro, with a fourth-placed finish in one event and a heavy crash in another, but it could still end on a high as he has just qualified for the men's 400m T54 final.

'I would cry as I didn't know if I would come back'

Women's 800m T54- Tatyana McFadden wins fourth gold of championships

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

American Tatyana McFadden has just given a fascinating interview to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

She said: "I feel amazing, I'm so proud of myself. I'm sad it is coming to an end, and I really hope London hosts the World Championships again as they have done a great job with the crowd, the volunteers, the organisation, I really hope we can be back here. I really had to focus on each event and stay in the game. This is the last (race for me) and I was going to give it 100%.

"I had surgery three months ago, coming out of surgery I would cry as I didn't know if I would come back. My speeds were so slow and I was thinking 'I would never make it'. I had to step back, focus on recovery 100% and not travel to anything.

"I had to miss the London Marathon and all I wanted to do was make it back to London after 2012. I love the people here and the event. In the last two months, I had to focus on recovery and really strict nutrition.

"The main goal is the next World Championships and Tokyo 2020."

One last chance for Chiassaro

Men's 400m T54 (heats from 20:30 BST)

It has been a frustrating - and painful - competition so far for Britain's Richard Chiassaro.

He has come fourth in the men's 200m T54, eighth in the 1500m and crashed in the 800m final, which has seen him disqualified for when the race takes place again on Friday.

But the 35-year-old has one last hope for a medal as he is in the 400m heats tonight, aiming to secure his spot in tomorrow's final.

Chiassaro (pictured) goes in the second heat at 20:37 BST, with fellow Brit Nathan Maguire, who came sixth in the 200m, in heat three at 20:44 BST.

It was an incredible performance by Tatyana McFadden. Earlier in the week she was not looking that sharp, but when she had such a big lead, it looked like the others were not chasing her down.

Never in doubt. Tatyana McFadden wins by a long, long way for her fourth gold. She finishes more than a second and a half in front of Switzerland's Manuela Schaer, who takes second.

McFadden takes a big lead at about the 300m mark and no-one else could get anywhere near her. That is fifteen World Championship golds for the American. Sensational.

She says: "Coming into today I was a little sore from the 200m. Bronze is a good thing for me. You don't get these opportunities again.

"I saw the good physios we have. I'm a bit away from the first two girls and over the winter I can hopefully improve."

Incredible

Women's 800m T54 (20:20 BST)

How about this for a medal collection?

American Tatyana McFadden is going for an incredible 15th World Championship gold very soon.

She has already had success in this competition with gold medals in the women's 200m, 400 and 1500m T54 events and now she is going for another gold, this time at the 800m.

She is only 28 years old, so there will be many more chances to build on these sensational numbers in the future.

'Am I really a world champion or is this a lie?'

Ten Brits have won gold at London Stadium over the last week, and one of them is Sophie Kamlish.

Super talented Sophie is also a fine artist as she is studying Illustration and Animation at Kingston University.

BBC Sport caught up with Kamlish after her gold medal in the women's 100m T44 event and also set her a drawing challenge.

Sparser crowds for ceremonies

Medal ceremonies at these championships have been held on a stage in the fan park next to London Stadium.

The glorious sunshine and a glut of British medals for the first few days drew decent crowds.

Today though, with clouds up above and no home favourites to collect gongs, there was only a smattering of spctators.

The alternative, of course, is to hand out medals in the stadium, but there can be anything up to 20 ceremonies a day and it's just not feasible.

'I ran very angry'

Men's 200m T12 heats (semi-finals at 19:15 BST on Thursday)

And let's hear from the man in question.

Zac Shaw tells BBC Radio 5 live: "I had to work hard for that one. I came off the bend in a good position and halfway down the straight it was very close. I ran that race very angry. I was so disappointed not to do my best in the 100m."

He made a heart sign with his hand before the race and is asked why.

"For me to represent my country is the proudest moment. I want to show my appreciation," he replied."

'One of my proudest moments'

Men's 200m T12 heats (from 19:26 BST)

Next up is British sprinter Zac Shaw, who has already been in action in this competition as he competed in the men's 100m T12, winning his heat last Friday, before coming fourth in his semi-final.

The 23-year-old described his Friday victory as "one of the proudest moments of my life" and he will be aiming to advance into tomorrow's semi-finals in the 200m.

When he was 10, his vision started deteriorating and a few years later he was diagnosed as having Stargardt’s Disease. While his peripheral vision is not affected, he has less than 10% central vision.

Back to the present, and Britain's Rhys Jones has just been talking to BBC Radio 5 live after qualifying for the final of the men's 100m T37.

He said: "I can't give more than that. The crowd were phenomenal. Two false starts didn't help.

"I've never run that fast in my life - even when my mum’s been chasing me with things. Lets hope I can go faster in the final."
