Don't forget, our highlights show will be broadcast at 19:00 BST tonight on BBC Two if you have missed or want to relive any of the action. Bye for now.

Proctor wins silver

Women's long jump final

What a day for Shara Proctor. She rewrote the British athletics record books as she became the first British female long jumper to go over 7m, as she claimed a silver medal.

Schippers wins gold

Women's 200m final

So one of the most dramatic moments of the day came in the 200m when Dafne Schippers won the gold.

The Netherlands sprinter became the third fastest in the 200m with her winning time of 21.63 seconds.

Updated medal table

So Great Britain have today picked up their fourth medal of the World Championships with Shara Proctor winning a silver in the women's long jump.

Lorraine Ugen (fifth, long jump), Tiffany Porter (fifth, women's 100m hurdles) and Dina Asher-Smith (fifth, women's 200m) will be ruefully thinking of what might have been.

Schippers shines

Women's 200m champion

What a night in Beijing. The new women's 200m world champion Dafne Schippers is understandably a little bit happy as she talks with BBC Sport's Phil Jones.

"Wow. It's crazy. A European record. I'm the world's best. Wow. Crazy. I'm so happy," screams a very-excited Schippers.

That was about the gist of it. Schippers' time of 21.63 seconds was the third best of all time. Only Florence Griffith-Joyner (21.34 in 1988) and Marion Jones (21.62 in 1998) have gone quicker.

'Shara was really dialled in'

Women's long jump final

American Christian Taylor, who has just collected his triple jump gold, has had a busy night in Beijing as he also was cheering on training partner Shara Proctor, the Briton who took silver in the women's long jump.

"There were some mental hurdles Shara had to get over and she really dialled into that," said Taylor. "I was just telling her to be in that moment and build off the energy. It's a special night and you don't often get this opportunity.

"Up to the fifth last jump she was in the number one spot. But it only takes one performance and someone else can take that gold. Unfortunately she just lost out but it's a new national record."

'We showed up tonight'

Great Britain's Commonwealth and European 400m silver medallist Jodie Williams writes on twitter.

What an evening, well done to all Brits, we showed up tonight 🇬🇧🇬🇧

'Definitely a missed opportunity'

Women's 100m hurdles

Tiffany Porter
PA

I didn't execute my race, I kind of pressed towards the end. It's definitely a missed opportunity and I'm really disappointed. As a competitor at this level you know when it wasn't a clean race and when you messed up. It's 10 barriers, you have to execute every one cleanly and I didn't. It's one of those events where you have to learn and grow, I'm going to come back stronger next time.

'That medal was thrown away'

I have to say it - Tiffany Porter felt the pressure. You're not there until you cross the line. That medal was thrown away.

'I made a lot of mistakes'

Women's 100m hurdles

I'm very disappointed. You go out there to do your best, I tried my best, it didn't happen so I have to congratulate the ladies who medalled. I made a lot of mistakes.

Colin Jackson

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV

"It was an incredible performance by the other Europeans in the race. It was always going to be a blanket finish so it was no surprise to see it. Porter should not have tried to correct her line. In a straight race if you're not impeding anyone you won't get disqualified for leaving your lane. The fact she tried to check herself, cost her the bronze medal."

'Agony for Tiffany'

Women's 100m hurdles

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

Agony. If that was the World Indoor Championships over 60m we'd be looking at a British winner. Tiffany Porter started over striding, losing momentum and the rest of the field engulfed her and spat her out. That is agony. I can feel the pain.

Danielle Williams wins gold, Porter fifth

Women's 100m hurdles

One of those sisters, Danielle Williams, has the Jamaican flag in her hands. She wins gold.

It is a finish that will haunt Tiffany Porter. The Briton was leading with two hurdles to go, she mistimes it, loses her line and misses out on a medal by the narrowest margin. She falls over the line and crumples in a heap.

She ends up face down on the track and when she looks up she sees that the scoreboard has her in fifth position.

Another famous pair of Williams sisters

Women's 100m hurdles

There are two sisters in the women's 100m hurdles final. With Danielle and Shermaine Williams running for Jamaica.

For Britain, Tiffany Porter has a chance of gold, but her younger sister Cindy Ofili has to watch from the sidelines after failing to make it through her semi-final.

'Unbelievable' medal for Merritt

Men's 110m hurdles

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

Russia are having a pretty dismal champs but that man Shubenkov has just made them smile. I must admit I did not see that one coming, he looked good through the rounds but all eyes were on David Oliver. But he clattered the hurdle with his lead leg and that ruined his chances. Everyone was hoping it could be a Hollywood blockbuster for Aries Merritt but to finish with a medal is just unbelievable. He will always smile and come over and chat. I touched his shoulder and he's got almost no muscle definition, he's so skinny, because of his kidney problems. You just hope and pray everything goes well with his operation. He is a beautiful hurdler.

It is a frantic session at the Bird's Nest stadium. Tiffany Porter goes in the women's 100m hurdles final shortly. But firstly, some more analysis on the men's 110m hurdles.

'I'm here, I conquered' - Proctor

Shara Proctor's long jump silver

This is my fifth World Championships and I knew I had to compete. I feel like a winner, I don't care about the colour of the medal. I was told I might not be strong enough. I'm here, I conquered.

Taylor gets his gold

Men's triple jump

They started the competition slowly but it has got better for the American team. Their national anthem is ringing around the Bird's Nest stadium as Christian Taylor is presented with his medal. He produced the second-longest jump in history of 18.21m to take his second world title.

Great Britain's Jonathan Edwards hung on to his world record. But only just.

Sergey Shubenkov wins gold

Men's 110m hurdles final

What a time to run a personal best. Russia's Sergey Shubenkov goes under 13 seconds for the first time in his life.

And it is good enough to take the gold medal. He wins it in 12.98 seconds, with Jamaica's Hansle Parchment second and American Aries Merritt, who will be having a kidney transplant on Tuesday, picking up a bronze medal.

Chris Gunn:  Asher-Smith just makes me smile when she's talking. Just seems like a genuine person.

Asher-Smith "over the moon"

"I'm over the moon. To be in a race of that standing, 21.63 seconds is ridiculous. I didn't know those times existed. I gave it my all. I always run better when relaxed so I tried to have fun. I'm happy to run a personal best and British record in a world final. I can't ask for any more. I didn't imagine I'd be coming fifth in the world, any time. It was amazing to be part of such a brilliant race."

Dina Asher-Smith finished fifth in 22.07secs

'Dina will be around for a long, long time'

"As for Dina, she'll go back to uni and they'll all be talking about what we did over the summer...'yes I broke two national records'. If you didn't know Dina you do now - and she is going to be around for a long, long time."

Merritt faces transplant

Men's 110m hurdles (14:20 BST)

It is set to be an emotional night on the track as American Aries Merritt competes for the last time in the 110m hurdles, before he undergoes a kidney transplant on Tuesday.

"I am here in Beijing for mental sanity more than anything," said Merritt. "I don't want to be sitting in my house cooped up in bed waiting for surgery."

Chief sports writer in Beijing

"Arsenal supporters may want to throw all their weight behind the beefy frame of reigning champion David Oliver, a huge Arsenal fan as well as an extremely nice man.

"Everyone else will be struggling not to root for Olympic champion Aries Merritt, who has revealed that he not only has a rare kidney disorder but is booked in for a transplant immediately after these championships, his sister being the donor."

'More to come'

Women's long jump

I feel like I have just run a 400! I can't even speak right now. I'm just happy right now. I was happy with 7.07 but I was still ready to compete. I was on crutches for four weeks this time last year. Thanks to my coach, I know I'm a lot to deal with, and there is more to come - that's for sure.

'What a performance from Shara'

Women's long jump final

Allison Curbishley

BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

Thank heavens Shara Proctor got out of the pit with a big grin on her face - you've just broken the British record - and it took Bartoletta, the champion from 10 years ago, to jump 7.14. Shara pushed her all the way - what a performance.

"Schippers took it to a whole other level. We knew she had the strength, we knew that would be telling over the 200m and she has claimed that crown."

Schippers third fastest ever

Dafne Schippers has just become the third fastest women's 200m runner of all time. What a performance. Jamaica's Elaine Thompson narrowly misses out on the gold medal, losing the race in the closing stages as she is out-sprinted by Schippers.

'One of the worst weeks of my life' - KJT

Women's long jump

Speaking of the women's long jump, Katarina Johnson-Thompson has just been talking to BBC Sport. And the 22-year-old is devastated after only coming 11th in the final.

It's such an amazing competition and I crave events like this. I'm really disappointed not to be in the final eight but I gave everything I could. I don't know why this has been sent to test me, this has been one of the worst weeks of my life, but hopefully I can bounce back next year.

No medal for Ugen

Final jump from Lorraine Ugen and it is a big no-jump. She is fifth, but team-mate Shara Proctor is still in gold-medal position.
