There were also tears, as there often is when the stakes are high, as Molly Huddle celebrated too soon and lost out on 10,000m bronze. 

Thanks, as always, for joining us. There will be more of the same on Tuesday, with five gold medals to be won. Can Greg Rutherford add the world title to his Olympic, European and Commonwealth golds? We'll find out on Tuesday afternoon. 

If you missed any of today's action, or just want to watch it all again, there will be highlights online and on BBC Two from 19:00 BST.

There's no more track and field for us to watch which means we will call it a day. Sprinting gold for Jamaica as another of the country's great wins 100m gold, there was a shock in the pole vault as Renaud Lavillenie once again fails to win a world title, while Olympic champion Greg Rutherford has progressed to the long jump final.

'Coe will do great things'

Nice to see @sebcoe today at the track. Happy he is the new president of the IAAF. Will do great things for the sport

'Huddle may never have that opportunity again'

Women's 10,000m final

Michael Johnson

BBC Sport athletics expert & 400m world record holder

Talking about American Molly Huddle who was set to win a bronze medal in the women's 10,000m, but celebrated too early and was pipped on the line by compatriot Emily Infeld.

"Molly Huddle had a medal and gave it up with a real freshman mistake. It's unfortunate for her. She is disappointed and embarrassed and may never have that opportunity ever again. That medal was hers."

Picture of the day

As we prepare to wrap up for the day, it'd be remiss not to mention Rolanda Bell who made a splash in the women's 3000m steeplechase heats today, falling head over heels into the water, a moment which was captured beautifully by a photographer.

'Schippers has a very bright future in the 100m'

Women's 100m final

Michael Johnson

BBC Sport athletics expert & 400m world record holder

"Those were the best sprinters in the world so for a European to get a silver medal when everyone is there then that bodes well for Dafne Schippers.

"I wouldn't expect her to go back to the heptathlon and she has a very bright future in the 100m. It was a tough field and she was able to come out with a silver medal and a personal best."

'I'm tired of 10.7s'

Women's 100m final


Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has just won a gold medal, but is not too impressed with her time.

I'm getting tired of 10.7s. I just want to put a good race together and hopefully in the next race I get the time I'm working for. I definitely think a 10.6 is there. Hopefully I will get it together. I just trust in God, work hard and focus on executing.

The medal table has changed since this morning, with Kenya and Jamaica overtaking Britain at the top. Britain still in third, though, after day three. 

Fraser-Pryce's hair secrets revealed

Phil Jones asks Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce about her haircut and she reveals she coloured her hair herself. "I had these green braids and I thought, what the heck," she says, laughing, and looking like she's just stepped out of a salon.

'Impressive running'

That women's 100 was very exciting to watch! Massive Congrats to @dafneschippers & the other ladies! Impressive running by all!

Close but not close enough


If it were the 110m perhaps Dafne Schippers would have caught Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce but, on the other hand, if the finishing line wasn't looming the world champion probably would not have slowed down and celebrated. 

'Wow! I'm so happy'

Women's 100m final

I'm so very happy. It's a national record and I'm second in the world. It's crazy. Wow. Three years before I was third in the heptathlon, now I've come into the sprint and I've got a medal. I was a little bit nervous in the semi-final and after that I thought 'anything is possible'. The start was good and I was close at the end. When you're close to Fraser-Pryce you know you've got a medal.

Selfies for Fraser-Pryce

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is waving to her fans,and there are many of them, and poses with the Jamaican flag for the photographers. The hair and the Jamaican flag go together nicely, which I suppose is the point. 

There are also a few obligatory selfies to take, of course. 

Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce just managed to pass the Dutchie on her right hand side! #bbcathletics #Schippers

Bronze for Bowie

America's Tori Bowie, another who has swapped events, from long jump to sprinting, wins 100m bronze in 10.86. 

'What a start!'

Darren Campbell

Former British sprinter on BBC Radio 5 live

"Fraser-Pryce did not leave anything to chance. I've never seen anyone come out of the blocks so explosively in my life - male or female - and she opened a four metre gap. 

"Schippers did not fear her and never gave up but she couldn't quite close the gap."

'She will not be happy with the way she ran'

Women's 100m final

Colin Jackson

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion

"Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will be very pleased with the victory but I'm not sure she will be happy with the way she ran.

"The start was not as good as I expected and that's why we didn't see her get close to her personal best of 10.70."

A golden hat-trick for Fraser-Pryce


Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce had time to salute as she crossed the line, celebrating before the finish which allowed Dafne Schippers to close in on her. It was a straightforward victory in the end for the Jamaican. 

Fraser-Pryce wins 100m title in 10.76

Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce the favourite, the defending champion, out of the blocks first, ahead of everyone by halfway but Dafne Schippers is closing her down... 

...the finishing line comes to Fraser-Pryce's rescue before the Dutchwoman can close in, and she crosses the line in 10.76 to successfully defend her title. 

Schippers, a heptathlete by trade before she switched to sprinting, takes silver in a national record 10.81.

Women's 100m - seconds to go

We're just waiting for the introductions to be done and dusted before battle commences...

Women's 100m final

Two-time world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has a champion's hairstyle. 

There's talk the green-dreadlocked great could run 10.60 - only three women have ever dipped under 10.70 in the 100m and no-one has done so since 2009. Can the Jamaican do it? 


Women's 100m final line-up

Women's 100m final line-up

Here are the contenders, featuring the big names... defending champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, European champion Dafne Schippers, America's Tori Bowie... and I could go on. 

Women's 100m final

If the women's 100m finalists can finish with the elan of Ezekiel Kemboi we will have experienced a wonderful race. 

The fastest women in the world, who also happen to have the best haristyles in the world will burst out of the blocks at around 14:35 BST, which is pretty soon really. 

Vote result

Earlier we asked if you think Usain Bolt and Mo Farah will do the double and the majority of you think both will - 69% of you in fact.

Thanks for voting.

'A great athlete and character'

Men's 3,000m steeplechase final

Brendan Foster

Olympic medallist and BBC athletics commentator

"That was absolutely amazing from Ezekiel Kemboi. You don't win four world titles and two Olympic Games without being the very best. He is a great athlete and a character of the track."

Kemboi wins 3,000m steeplechase

Blimey. An incredible turbo-charged burst of speed from Ezekiel Kemboi after the bell and the Kenyan overtakes everyone and maintains his pace to capture a fourth consecutive world title. An astonishing sprint finish, clocking 8:11.28 to win. 

Predictably, it was a Kenyan top three, with Conseslus Kipruto (8:12.38) second and Brimin Kiprop Kipruto (8:12.54)  joining them on the podium. 

3,000m steeplechase final

American Evan Jager, who looks more like a decathlete such is his stature, is ranked second in the world this year and bursts into the lead at the bell... but he's quickly overtaken and his chances are gone, gone, gone... 

Kenyans dominating steeplechase

"It's going to be a sprinter's race," says Brandan Foster of the men's 3,000m steeplechase final. 2013 World silver medallist Conseslus Kipruto is leading the bunch. Blond American Evan Jager is by his side. 


Pole vault gold for Barber

Both Shawnacy Barber and Raphael Holzdeppe fail to clear 6.00m after three attempts which means gold will be awarded to young Canadian Barner, who cleared 5.90m with his first attempt.

Molly Huddle

Here's how close a finish it was between compatriots Molly Huddle and Emily Infield. I guess a distance runner does not usually have to master the dip finish.

3,000m steeplechase final

And now after that drama we have the 3,000m steeplechase final under way. Ezekiel Kemboi bidding for a fourth consecutive world title. He's one of four Kenyans in the final, but no British athletes I'm afraid.

'Run through the line!'

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

"I cannot believe what I have just seen! Run through the line! Molly Huddle's team-mate Emily Infeld pips her right on the line and takes bronze. She has handed that to Infeld. She will regret that for the rest of her life, she relaxed on the line and is absolutely distraught."

Kirsten: Don't think the two American 10,000m runners will be room mates going forward #bronzeontheline

Richard Butler: Huddle... You should run through the line.

Burka second, Infeld third

Ethiopia's Gelete Burka (31:41.77) must settle for second, while America's Molly Huddle, who did all the hard work in the final laps, pushing the others on, is beaten to the line in a sprint finish by her compatriot Emily Infeld (31:43.49). Tears for Huddle, who slowed thinking bronze was hers, joy for her team-mate. Sport can be cruel. 

Winner - Cheruiyot reclaims 10,000m world title

It's Kenya versus Ethiopia, Gelete Burka versus Vivian Cheruiyot... the pair scrap it out coming down the home straight and it's the Kenyan Cheruiyot who is the stronger, winning in 31:41.31. The Kenyan now a four-time world champion.

We're into the final stages of the women's 10,000m... the final bell tolls and there are seven athletes in contention... Vivian Cheruiyot in contention...

Pole Vault final

Defending champ Holzdeppe clears 5.90m

Excitement in the pole vault final. Defending champion Raphael Marcel Holzdeppe has one final chance to clear 5.90m - and he does it!

The final now a showdown between the German and Canada's Shawnacy Barber. Renaud Lavillenie has been confirmed as the bronze medallist, which is not what he came to Beijing for.
