  1. Post update

    5-4-3-2-1 and cut. That's a wrap from us after another golden day for Britain and Sunday promises to be as glorious, too. The action will begin at 14:00 BST and includes thrilling relays, the men's 1500m final, the men's long jump final and the men's 5,000m final. Did anyone mention Greg and Mo? Did anyone mention Super Sunday? Bye for now.

    Adam Dola: What a race from Bahta! Thought Hassan was going to take it coming into the home straight. Feel sorry for Jo Pavey.

    Aidan Syers: Nice words from Gorecka about Jo Pavey.

    Amy Warrington: Good on you Adam Gemili. First gold medallist I've seen singing their countries national anthem #amazing

    Lynne: Great to see Adam Gemili - and that smile! - with his gold medal on top of that podium.

  4. Post update

    Emelia Goreckha, who came ninth, pays a glowing tribute to team-mate Pavey at the finish line.

    "It sounds cheesy," she said, "but Jo is such an inspiration. She is also the loveliest lady ever and it is a delight to be on a track with her."

  5. Post update

    Jo Pavey after finishing seventh in the women's 5,000m final: "I knew recovering from the 10,000m would be difficult but I gave it everything.

    "To be honest I can't be more pleased to come away from these Championships with a gold. Thanks to everyone because it has been such a fantastic experience."

  7. Post update

    Eilidh Child is beaming with pride as she rounds off a fantastic summer with gold in the 400m hurdles. "If you'd told me the summer I was going to have I don't think I would have believed you.

    "I'm absolutely delighted to have a gold medal. I knew if I got the race right, I'd be happy with the outcome. There are so many people I need to thank - everyone has been so great."

  8. Post update

    Eilidh Child takes a bite of the gold medal which is now hers and barely has the brass band finished playing God Save the Queen that they must start up again as 200m champion Adam Gemili prepares to step on top of the podium.

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    Jo Pavey of Great Britain

    "I thought Jo Pavey looked a bit tired. It was one race too much for her. We were saying at the start it was a big ask. To ask her to take on the 1,500m specialists in a 5,000m race was always going to be tough. We crossed our fingers that she might get a medal but it was always going to come down to the last 400m and the others had the pace."

  10. Britain's Pavey seventh

    Britain's Jo Pavey was out of contention with 200m remaining and it's a seventh-place finish for the European 10,000m champion in a time of 15:38.41. Fellow Briton Emelia Goreckha (15:42.98) was ninth.

  11. Gold medal

    Sweden's Bahta wins 5,000m gold

    Meraf Bahta of Sweden

    What a wonderful finale! Meraf Bahta and Sifan Hassan shoulder-to-shoulder down the home straight.

    European 1500m champion Hassan looked to have got the better of her Swedish rival, but Bahta bounces back, lengthens her stride and opens up a gap once more, raising her arms as she crosses the line victoriously.

  12. Women's 5,000m final

    Jo Pavey second with two laps to go but there are 10 athletes in the leading group and it'll come down to the fastest sprinter. European 1500m champion Sifan Hassan still in contention.

  13. Women's 5,000m final

    Britain's Emelia Goreckha, the two-time European junior cross champion, strides towards the front of the pack. The 20-year-old content to remain in fourth at the moment. "This will be a 2,000m race," says Brendan Foster, suggesting the finalists will up the tempo in these remaining four laps.

  14. Women's 5,000m final

    Scooter-pace is the best way to describe the speed the ladies are running in the 5,000m final. "It's slow," says Brendan Foster in the BBC commentary box. Seven laps remaining and Jo Pavey is among the front-runners. "It's way too slow," adds Steve Cram.

  15. Post update

    Renaud Lavillenie of France

    Three failures for Renaud Lavillenie at 6.01m brings the pole vault final to an end, though the competition ended some time ago. Ukraine's Olha Saladukha remains in the lead in the women's triple jump final, while Croatia's Sandra Perkovic is in control in the women's discus final.

  16. Post update

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    "We know Jo Pavey is going to give her all but this is going to be hard."

  17. Women's 5,000m final

    Jo Pavey is warming up on the track ahead of the women's 5,000m final. A glug of water for the 40-year-old mother of two before she trots towards the start line.

    Pavey became the oldest gold medallist in the 80-year history of the European championships when she won 10,000m gold on Tuesday night. Can she complete the distance double? Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe think it's a tough task.

  18. Women's discus final

    Sandra Perkovic was favourite for gold ahead of this final and she justifies that billing with a 64.58m effort on her first attempt to leap to the top of the discus learderboard. The Olympic, world and two-time European champion has recorded the top four distances in the world this year.

    Eilidh Child

    "Eilidh Child has worked so hard. She is a grafter. When she made the decision to put her foot down in that race it proved decisive. She has raced with such confidence all season and I just loved her face when she finished that race - the realisation of winning. It will be her first time on top of that rostrum and it is going to feel great."

  20. Men's pole vault final

    World record holder Renaud Lavillenie has already secured gold, but he's not done yet. The Frenchman has cleared 5.90m in the pole vault, but has failed on his first attempt at 6.01m.

    Ste Hoskins: Well done Eilidh Child. Great run, 400m hurdles gold medallist.

    Ian Bradley: Childs play, the British golden games roll on.

  22. Women's 400m hurdles final

    Anna Titimets sticks out her chest on the finishing line to grab silver in a personal best 54.56 sec. Irina Davydova, the defending champion, has to settle for silver. It was a season's best 54.60sec for the Russian, though.

  23. Post update

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion and BBC Sport athletics expert

    "A great strong solid performance by Eilidh Childs. She kept to her game-plan. If she had made any type of mistake going into the last barrier, that gold medal would not have been hers. It was a beautifully, well-timed race and well done - she will be really pleased."

  24. Gold medal

    Child wins 400m hurdles gold

    Eilidh Child of Great Britain

    Her rivals were gaining ground, but Eilidh Child becomes the European 400m hurdles champion, clocking 54.48 secs.

    Europe's number one didn't celebrate immediately, preferring to wait for official confirmation before clenching the fist and breaking out in a glorious smile.

  25. Post update

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion and BBC Sport athletics expert

    "Eilidh Childs is looking a little anxious because she knows she is going to have to be at her absolute best to take the title."

  26. Women's 400m hurdles final

    Eilidh Child is on the track. The Scot, a Commonwealth silver medallist, has just removed her t-shirt which suggests she's ready for action. The 27-year-old is tipped to improve on her Commonwealth silver, but she must look out for Anna Titimets and Denisa Rosolova, who are the only other athletes to have broken 55 seconds this season.

  27. Women's triple jump final

    Olha Saladukha is on course for a third straight European triple jump title. The Ukrainian leads the final with a 14.73m jump. Russia's Yekaterina Koneva has just closed the gap, moving to second with a 14.69m effort.

    Goldie Sayers: Thanks for having me this morning BBC. Great fun and the coffee was very welcome.

    Lynne: Well done Lynsey Sharp on another medal! We have a great wealth of talented athletes to be proud of!

    Rachel: Adam Gemili's mum should be so proud of him. What a wonderful ambassador for athletics. Congratulations.

  29. Post update

    Fish-finger sandwiches. That is the secret to being a 400m medallist at the European Championships.

    Or at least that seems to be the case after Matthew Hudson-Smith, who followed team-mate Martyn Rooney home yesterday to claim a fantastic silver, tells BBC One he loves fish-finger butties and has had them smuggled into the team hotel.

  30. Gold medal

    Lavillenie wins pole vault gold

    Acrobatics from Renaud Lavillenie as he joyously somersaults after clearing 5.80m on his first first attempt. The Frenchman has only vaulted twice so far this afternoon but it's enough to secure him the title. Will he go for that world record?

  31. Ireland through to 4x400m relay final

    The Irish team celebrate as Thomas Barr digs deep to secure third spot - and it's an Irish record, too, for the men in green who clocked 3:03.57. Russia (3:03.19) comfortably won while Poland were second in 3:03.52.

  32. Post update

    Michael Bingham, Nigel Levine, Martyn Rooney and Rabah Yousif

    Just 24 hours after winning gold, Martyn Rooney helped Britain's 4x400m relay team to the final. "There's no rest for the wicked," he said. "To be honest if I had stayed in bed all day today I probably would have been more fatigued tomorrow."

    Team-mate Michael Bingham added: "If we keep running like this as a team, keep working together, we are capable of setting records."

  33. Post update

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    "That is a very good performance from that British quartet in the men's 4x400m relay. Those four have done very well. Nigel Levine led them off very well and Mr Martyn Rooney bought it home in a 44.6 secs last leg and made it look like he was out for a stroll."

  34. Post update

    Joining Britain in the final are France, who were second in 3:00.80, and third-placed Germany (3:02.41). Martyn Rooney ran the last leg in an impressive 44.60sec, but says: "I was jogging".

  35. Victory for Britain in 4x400m heats

    Rabah Yousif hangs on to present Martyn Rooney the baton in the lead. The European 400m champion, wearing shades on a sunny afternoon in Zurich, comfortably steers his team home, winning in 3:00.65.

  36. Men's 4x400m relay (qualification)

    Daily Mirror

    As the curtains rise for the biggest, brashest, boldest show in football, it is another Rooney who has been making headlines. "Martyn finally sheds his nearly man tag," says the Daily Mirror of Martyn Rooney's 400m gold on Friday.

    The Briton is back in action TODAY, taking charge of the last leg in the men's 4x400m heats which begins NOW.

  37. Post update

    Victoria Ohuruogu helps GB's women qualify for the 4x400m final, then reveals it's the first time she has run the relay without her rather famous big sister Christine.

    "She is like the mum to this relay group and she had a little chat with us before the race," she said. "It was quite nice stepping out by myself and hopefully I did an OK job."

  38. Men's pole vault final

    Steven Lewis of Britain

    There will be no medal for Steve Lewis, who tumbles out of the competition after two failures at 5.70m. Three athletes have cleared 5.70m, while defending champion Renaud Lavillenie decides to skip that height and move tot he next. That's confidence.

  39. Post update

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    Talking after the British women qualify for the women's 4x400m final. "I think that was a pretty good run but the question is going to be who is going to come in?

    "Will Jodie Williams get a run, will Christine Ohuruogu be brought in? There are some really interesting decisions to be made and to see who will get a chance to run for glory tomorrow."

  40. Gold medal

    Hungary's Pars defends hammer title

    The first gold medal of the day is awarded to [dramatic pause] Hungary's Krisztian Pars, who threw a world leading 82.69m on his final attempt to successfully defend his title.

    Finishing behind the Olympic champion in second is world champion Pawel Fajdek (82.05m) and the bronze goes to Russia's Sergey Litvinov after a season's best 79.35m.

  41. Britain reach 4x400m relay final

    Victoria Ohuruogu hands the baton to Margaret Adeoye in second spot with Russia leading. Adeoye hunts down Russia's Justyna Swiety on the home straight, she inches closer and closer and nearly overtakes the tall blonde but runs out of track. Victory for Russia in 3:28.42, with Britain (3:28.44) second and Poland (3:29.79) third.

    Fran Holmes: I could watch/listen to Adam Gemili all day. Great win last night and, unlike some, a great personality too!

    Mel: Why do some athletes wear mismatched trainers? Been puzzling me for ages that.

  43. Men's hammer final

    Krisztian Pars of Hungary

    Tension in the men's hammer final as Krisztian Pars and Pawel Fajdek go blow for blow. Defending champion Pars has overtaken his Polish rival to take the lead with a 82.18m third throw. There's 13cm separating the pair.

    One round remaining and there could be fireworks.

  44. Men's pole vault final

    World record holder Renaud Lavillenie decides it's time to remove his tracksuit and put in a shift. He might as well, he's come all this way.

    The Frenchman makes flying over a pole look so easy, effortlessly sailing over 5.65m on his first attempt.

  45. Ukraine & France secure final spots

    Defending champions Ukraine (3:28.18) comfortably win the first heat of the 4x400m relay heats and France (3:28.58) are untroubled in second, but it's a battle royale for third between Belgium and Italy and it's the Italians who come out on top, clocking 3:31.31.

  46. Women's 4x400m (qualifying)

    Time to turn our attention to the women's 4x400m qualifying rounds. Britain's Emily Diamond, Kelly Massey, Victoria Ohuruogu and Margaret Adeoye will compete in the second heat so the teams to look out for in the first heat are France and Ukraine, who are the quickest on paper this season.

    Great Britain's Lynsey Sharp

    Lynsey Sharp is delighted with her latest success, silver in the women's 800m. "I have felt so good all week," she said. "I knew I was in PB shape so even though front-running is totally different for me, I thought I'd just go for it.

    "I was in hospital on a drip for two weeks (earlier in the year) and at that point I didn't even know if I was going to have a season. So to go on and get a Scottish record, and silver at the Commonwealths and Europeans, is great."

    Laura Weightman is rooming with Jess Judd at these Championships and she tells BBC One: "Watching her in tears after that race got to me, I don't like to see her upset.

  49. Post update

    Jess Judd wipes away the tears after coming seventh in the women's 800m final. "I gave it everything, I couldn't have done any more - I even dipped at the line, even though I was seventh," she said.

    Maryna Arzamasova of Belarus sprints down the final straight ahead of Lynsey Sharp of Britain

    "Lynsey Sharp ran with conviction and you can't do much more than that. 31.2sec for Sharp in the last 200m. She gave it everything and there wasn't a single thing wrong with her performance.

    "Silver at the Commonwealth Games and silver in the European Championships - she is truly a world class performer."

  52. Personal best for Sharp

    So, gold for Maryna Arzamasova of Belarus in a European leading time of 1:58.15 but it was a personal best 1:58.80 for Lynsey Sharp, who is now eighth in the UK all-time list.

    Poland's Joanna Jozwik took bronze, while British teenager Jess Judd (2:01.65) was seventh.

    Sharp secures 800m silver

    Lynsey Sharp takes charge of the pack and is through in 58.2 sec at the bell. It's between Sharp and Maryna Arzamasova... Sharp, grimacing, leading into the final bend. Can she hold on? Agony. The Scot is overtaken on the home straight by the lady from Belarus and must settle for silver. A gutsy run by the Commonwealth silver medallist.

  55. Post update

    Laura Weightman is all smiles in the BBC One studio 24 hours after her gutsy 1,500m bronze. She didn't feel quite as sunny this morning though. "I was so tired and in a lot of pain because it was a really tough race, but waking up and knowing what you've achieved makes it all worthwhile.

    "I haven't got the out and out pace of some of other athletes so I have to go a bit sooner and try and take the sting out of a few of the other athletes legs. I had to use every bit of energy I had."

    "It's a huge chance for Lynsey Sharp. She's been so dominant and come on as an athlete. She always used to sit and wait to see what she could on the home straight, but she's got so much confidence now. I think Lynsey's got too much for them. It could be a great night for Britain and Scotland."

    Lynsey Sharp and Jess Judd are both medal contenders for the 800m final, which will start in a minute or so. The athletes are being introduced to the crowd, some blow kisses to the cameras, others wave to the crowd. Jess Judd is bouncing on the track. Full of boundless nervous energy.

  58. Euro Championships medal table

    If you get a kick out of medal tables (who doesn't?) and you're a fan of all things British, then the European Championships medal table is for you. Britain are top of the pile thanks to six golds and a total of 13 medals. Here's one I prepared earlier. Pursue at your leisure, Free of charge, of course.

  60. Post update

    Other than his 200m gold, Adam Gemili says one of his favourite moments of the European Championships was Jo Pavey's thrilling 10,000m success. "The whole team sat around the telly watching it and it gave us all goose-bumps. She set the standard."

    Pavey bids for a second gold later this afternoon when she competes in the 5000m final at 16:35 BST.

  61. Men's pole vault final.

    Lavillenie has yet to jump. The Frenchman is taking it easy while everyone else around him sweats and strains.

    Britain's Lewis succeeded at 5.40m, but has just failed to clear 5.60m on his first attempt. Greece's Konstandinos Filippidis currently tops the leaderboard, clearing 5.60m on his first attempt.

  62. Men's pole vault final

    The men's pole vault final began some time ago and it is a loaded field. Is there a hotter favourite than Olympic champion and new world record holder Renauld Lavillenie? As long as he remains fully clothed - unlike his compatriot Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad - he should secure a third European title.

    But let's not forget about Commonwealth champion Steve Lewis, although the 28-year-old is likely to have to surpass his season's best of 5.70m if he is to win a medal this afternoon.

  63. Post update

    Some of you might have been surprised the Brits got the baton around safely in their men's 4x100m heat, but the team themselves weren't.

    After reaching Sunday's final in 38.26 secs, Richard Kilty - who ran the second leg - said: "We have all got faith in each other to get the baton around safely. If we run as we can, we should run a fast time in the final and we can get gold."

    A handsome win for Germany. There was a sizeable gap between them and the rest when Lucas Jakubczyk was handed the baton for the last leg.

    And it's a season's best 38.15 sec for the Germans, while France (38.55) were second and Italy (38.71). The fastest losers? Portugal and Poland.

    A fist-pumping celebration from the pink-shirted Lord Seb Coe as he watched Britain's men win their heat. In the BBC Sport studio, Adam Gemili reveals that the sprint relay squad will learn of the line-up for Sunday's final this evening. A nervous few hours ahead for the sprinters.

  67. Post update

    Adam Gemili seems pleased with life as he is interviewed on the BBC One. Asked about yesterday's gold-medal winning run in the 200m, he says - with some understatement: "The race went all right really, it wasn't too bad!"

    The 20-year-old admitted his 19.98 seconds run in wet conditions and into a headwind of 1.6 metres per second surprised him. "I thought I was backing off quite a bit really so the time was quicker than I expected. My coach told me to save something for the final and that's what I did."

    Great Britain's Danny Talbot

    "The British 4x100m men's team are running for places. It will be interesting to know what the changes will be for the final. The relay is about getting the balance right for the four, not necessarily having the best man. Maybe Adam Gemili could come in on the final leg."

  69. Britain win to reach 4x100m final

    If you're looking for drama and tales of relay woe then you won't find it here because Britain are safely through to Sunday's final, qualifying in 38.26 secs.

    But it's Switzerland who are celebrating wildly because their men have broken the national record, recording 38.54 secs.

    Joining Britain and Switzerland in the finals will be the Netherlands (38.90).

  70. Men's 4x100m relay (qualifying)

    Britain's quartet consists of James Ellington, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, Richard Kilty and Danny Talbot so Chinjindu Ujah will not be making his European Championships debut today.

    Ujah, of course, became the fifth Briton to break the 10-second barrier when he clocked 9.96sec earlier this summer.

    Only three countries from the first heat have dipped under 39 seconds - Britain, Ukraine and the Netherlands.

  71. Men's 4x100m realy (qualifying)

    Talking of sprint relays, it's time to cross fingers and toes - and perhaps stroke a lucky charm too - because Britain's male sprinters are on the track for the 4x100m relay.

    The men's sprint relay team have been more consistent this season, but getting the baton around successfully has been a problem for the Brits in major championships as they have failed to do so in six of the last seven. Will they flounder again today?

    Daily Express back page

    The Premier League season kicks off today, but even that has not prevented Adam Gemili muscling his way onto the backpages after his glorious 200m gold on a teeth-clenching cold night in Zurich.

    The 20-year-old's performance, according to BBC Sport's Tom Fordyce, has confirmed his status as one of his sport's most exciting young talents.

    Gemili is currently chatting to Gaby Logan and Denise Lewis and says he will run in Sunday's sprint relay final "if they want me in the team".

  73. Men's hammer throw final

    The big-arm big-legged hammer throwers have started waltzing in their circle, chucking for supremacy. There is no British interest in this final, but it is a field oozing class with Olympic and defending European champion Krisztian Pars and world champion Pawel Fajdek vying for gold.

    It is Poland's Fajdek who has set the early standard, throwing 78.48m on his second attempt. Pars is currently second, though, with a 78.11m throw.

    "That run by the 4x100m French team will have given the British team something to think about. It was a very good run by the French. The British team did well in their heat. The second handover could have been a little better but that is the third ever fastest time by a British women's 4x100m quartet."

  75. Post update

    Ukraine produced a season's best 43.37 sec to cross the line in second, while the Russians qualified in third. Surprisingly, Germany - who had a season's best 42.74 secs coming into these championships - did not finish.

    By the way, the fastest loser spots have been awarded to Italy and Sweden.

  76. Britain through to women's 4x100m relay final

    The baton is safely round and Britain's quartet of Asha Philip, Ashleigh Nelson, Anyika Onuora and Desiree Henry easily win their heat in 42.62 secs, which is the third fastest time by a British women's sprint relay team.

    A dodgy exchange between Nelson and Onuora but not enough to cause palpitations.

  77. France win first 4x100m heat

    France's Stella Akakpo

    France step on the gas and Stella Akakpo guides her team home, clocking 42.29 secs. Netherlands (42.77) are some distance behind in second with Switzerland (42.98) third. An impressive performance by France.

  78. 4x100m women's relay (qualifying)

    Batons ready? Good because the first action of the day on the track is the qualifying rounds of the women's 4x100m relay. The Netherlands, the quickest team in Europe this year and with double sprint champion Daphne Schippers in their line-up, will dash around in the first heat from lane eight. Britain are in the second heat and should ease through to the final.

    The first three in each heat and the two fastest losers will qualify for Sunday's final.

    Hello! Welcome to live text coverage of the European Championships in Zurich, where Britain's athletes are feeling on top of the world, or on top of the continent at least. Six gold medals already secured and there could be more to come with with Lynsey Sharp, Eilidh Child and Jo Pavey racing today.
