  1. Thanks and goodbye

    Day seven of the World Championships certainly did not disappoint. And now it is time to say goodbye.

    So thank you for joining us and for your comments. We will be back for day eight at about 11:00 BST on Saturday.

    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.

  2. 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.

    Shara Proctor
  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. '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."

    Christian Taylor
  7. 'We showed up tonight'

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

  8. 'Definitely a missed opportunity'

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Tiffany Porter
    Quote Message: 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. from Tiffany Porter on BBC Radio 5 live Fifth in the women's 100m hurdles final

    Two hundredths of a second separate Tiffany Porter from a bronze medal.

  12. Porter penalises herself

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV

    Quote Message: "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."
  13. 'Agony for Tiffany'

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Allison Curbishley

    BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

    Quote Message: 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.
  14. 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.

    Danielle Williams
  15. 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.

  16. 'Unbelievable' medal for Merritt

    Men's 110m hurdles

    Allison Curbishley

    BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

    Quote Message: 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.
  17. Post update

    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.

  19. 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.

  21. 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.

    Dina Asher-Smith
    Quote Message: "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." from Dina Asher-Smith finished fifth in 22.07secs

    "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."

  25. 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."

  26. Arsenal fan Oliver gunning for glory

    Tom Fordyce

    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."

    Quote Message: 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.
  30. The results

    Women's long jump final

    So this is how it finished in the women's long jump final.

  31. 'Schippers whole other level'

    Women's 200m final

    Darren Campbell

    Former British sprinter on BBC Radio 5 live

    "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."

  32. Schippers third fastest ever

    Women's 200m final

    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.

    Quote Message: 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.

    Women's 200m final (14:00 BST)

    Tom Fordyce

    Chief sports writer in Beijing

    "Britain's Dina Asher-Smith - the 'Dasher' nickname being the best athletics example of nominative determinism since Bulgaria's Vania Stambolova stumbled over a hurdle at London 2012 - came to Beijing just hoping to make the World 200m final, yet after successive PBs goes into that showdown as a very real contender for a medal.

    "While Jamaica's Elaine Thompson may be marginal favourite and 100m silver medallist Dafne Schippers will be closing like a Dutch express train in the last 50m, the 19-year-old history student has a chance - and as someone who admits to loving the nerves that come before a race, she will relish every 22-point-something seconds."

    Women's 200m final (14:00 BST)

    Next up for Great Britain is 19-year-old Dina Asher-Smith in the women's 200m final. She has been hugely impressive so far in Beijing. Will she claim a medal?

  45. Proctor goes over 7m again

    Women's long jump final

    Shara Proctor is having a great time out there. She goes over seven metres again for the second time in 30 minutes after no British female had ever done so before. Her effort of 7.01m is not as good as her previous attempt of 7.07m, which still leads the competition.

    Shara Proctor
  46. Eaton extends his lead

    Men's decathlon

    Ashton Eaton was in the lead after four events in the men's decathlon. He is now even further ahead after a fantastic run in the men's 400m event. A time of 45.00 as he leads the field by a long way. It is the fastest ever 400m time in the decathlon.

    He screams out with arms outstretched as he crosses the line. He picks up 1,060 points to go with the 3,643 he had already earned. He leads by 173 points over Damian Warner. A good first day for American Eaton, who is finished for the day and comes back tomorrow with a large lead.

  47. Vote results - you predicted five medals

    So in our vote the majority of you decided that the British gold medal tally after today would be five.

    But we have just seen Shara Proctor break the British long jump record, we have Dina Asher-Smith going later in the 200m and Tiffany Porter in the women's 100m hurdles final, so might it be six? Stay tuned...

  48. How they stand after four events

    Men's decathlon

    This is how it stands after four events of the men's decathlon. The 400m is the last event today, before the remaining five events take place on Saturday.

  49. Eaton leads the way

    Men's decathalon

    Ashton Eaton

    The first events in the men's decathlon have been taking place earlier today. American Ashton Easton ran the fastest ever decathlon 100m at the World Championships to take the lead after four events on day one of the competition.

    The Olympic champion ran 10.23 seconds to win the 100m and followed it up with a winning long jump leap of 7.88m.  

    But his lead was of 3.643 points was cut by 56 points after Damian Warner of Canada had a season-best 2.04m in the high jump.

    Easton's fashion sense was also turning head in the Bird's Nest. He sported some interesting head gear, which is apparently a prototype cooling hood to help the world champion recover between events.

    Women's long jump

    It may be all over for Katarina Johnson-Thompson, but Shara Proctor has just produced something sensational.

    Her third jump of the final sees her go to 7.07m, a new British record and she leads the competition.

    She waited to see the distance and is absolutely delighted, bouncing around on the track.

    Will that be the jump that sees Great Britain win their fourth gold medal of this World Championships?

  55. Johnson-Thompson misses out on a medal

    Women's long jump final

    The pain continues for Katarina Johnson-Thompson. She misses out on a medal in the long jump. Two efforts of 6.63m, with a no jump in between, sees her down in 11th place out of 12 finalists.

    As mentioned, only the top eight go on to have three more jumps. She looks close to tears as she can only sit and watch from the sidelines.

    What a horrible World Championships for the 22-year-old.

A great run from Charlie Grice just outside his personal best, looking strong. Sometimes the gods give you blessing and that was by far the easiest of the semi-finals. Charlie Grice has just made his first world final, this is a career that is going to get better and better.
  64. Charlie Grice qualifies

    Men's 1500m semi-finals

    It is good news, bad news for Great Britain. Charlie Grice comes fourth in the second semi-final to move into the final. But it is a fast semi-final, so Chris O'Hare does not secure one of the two fastest loser spots and is out.

    Men's 1500m semi-finals

    Chris O'Hare punches the track in frustration. It will be a cruel way to miss out on the final if he fails to get there.

    He was third with 300m to go, second with 80m left before a flurry of bodies go past him on the line. He comes seventh. Only the top five qualify automatically, as do the two fastest losers.

    There is a slight hope for O'Hare, but he is furious with himself.

  69. Post update

    Women's long jump final

    After what has happened in the heptathlon, you can understand why Katarina Johnson-Thompson plays it safe. She decelerates into the board, taking off 21cm short of it and records a distance of 6.63m. It probably won't be anywhere near enough for a medal but an early loosener.

  70. Men's 1500m semi-finals (12:55 BST)

    It is fast and frantic in the Bird's Nest stadium. Great Britain's Chris O'Hare and Charlie Grice will race in the men's 1500m semi-finals at 12:55 BST.

  71. Smile!

    Women's long jump

    The athletes then have to go through a bizarre routine where they all have to line-up one in front of each other and smile for the camera. Well, some smile, some look extremely focused. But it is thumbs up from Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

    Lorraine Ugen is first up. But her first attempt is red-flagged. That looked a long jump of around 7m but she was 1.9cm into the plasticine.

  72. GB trio in final

    Women's long jump (12:50 BST)

    Shara Proctor

    As well as Katarina Johnson-Thompson, the British record holder Shara Proctor is also competing in the long jump final.

    But she will have to better her qualifying jump of 6.68m, well short of her best of 6.98m.

    And competing the British trio is Lorraine Ugen, who impressed with a jump of 6.87m in qualifying.

  73. 'A British medal is a real possibility'

    Chief sports writer in Beijing

    "There is one clear favourite for this: USA's Tianna Bartoletta, world champion aged 19 a decade ago and the only woman in the field to go past seven metres this summer. 

    "But her best is only 14 centimetres longer than the British record that Shara Proctor set a month ago, and 20cm better than Proctor's GB team-mate Lorraine Ugen has jumped this year.

    "With Katarina Johnson-Thompson also looking to make up for her heptathlon disappointment last weekend, a British medal is a real possibility."

  75. 'I have a chance to rectify my mistake'

    Women's long jump final (12:50 BST)

    "I've had to sit and live with my thoughts for the last few days so it has been hard. When people were nice to me that's when I started to get upset."

    It has been a tough week for Katarina Johnson-Thompson, but the crying could soon be replaced by celebrations.

    She is among the 12 competitors in the long jump after her second jump of 6.79m, following a first attempt of 6.54m, saw her qualify in fifth position.

    "I'm very grateful to be able to represent the country in the long jump as well as the heptathlon, so I have a chance to rectify my mistake," she said.

  76. Johnson-Thompson's motivation

    Women's long jump (12:50 BST)

    This was the screensaver that Great Britain's Katarina Johnson-Thompson used for motivation following her disqualification from the long jump in the heptathlon on Sunday, that ended her chance of a medal in the event.

    Katarina Johnson Thompson

    But the extra motivation has done the trick as the 22-year-old jumped 6.79m to qualify for the long jump final at 12:50 BST.

    She will be joined by Brits Lorraine Ugen, who impressed with a jump of 6.87m and Shara Proctor who qualified in eleventh place with 6.68m.

  79. Sayers out

    Javelin qualification

    Britain's Goldie Sayers is out of the javelin after fouling on her final attempt.

    Her furthest throw of 58.28 won't be enough to make the final.

    Quote Message: Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I'm sure she will find something wrong with it but she did the job. She wasn't pushed but she has impressed me, much more like the Tiffany Porter that won bronze at the 2013 World Championship and she will take much confidence from the fact Harper-Nelson and Harrison are now out."

    Perfect from Tiffany Porter, who wins the race and the Briton is into the final, which comes up later at 14:35 BST.

    Cindy Ofili is cheering and applauding from the sidelines. A job well done from Porter.

    Tiffany Porter wins
  82. Harrison disqualifed

    Women's 100m hurdles semi-finals

    The gun goes but it is a false start from American Kendra Harrison. She stands there waiting for confirmation. And the dreaded red and black card comes out. She is gone. Off goes Harrison, muttering to an official.

    She doesn't seem to think she's done anything wrong but she was definitely the first to move. She also didn't know what the black and red card meant. But it means the end of her hopes.

    A terrible few minutes for American sprint hurdlers.

  86. Goldie in trouble

    Not the start Goldie Sayers is after in the women's javelin qualification. She records a throw of 58.11m with her second throw after 58.28m with her first attempt. She needs a better third round or is heading home early.

    Goldie Sayers
    Quote Message: Goldie will have to go back to what she has done in the past ,she has thrown the British record before here in this stadium. She has had problems with her right knee, which is important as it is all about throwing with the legs. She will need to improve on that.

    Ouch. American Dawn Harper-Nelson crashes into one of the hurdles. She was the second fastest in the field. She was tipped as a medal contender but hits the second hurdle hard with her trailing leg and that sends her face-first into the next hurdle.

    Britain's Cindy Ofili, running in lane nine, finishes sixth in 12.91 seconds. It won't be enough for a place in the final.

    Great Britain will be represented in the women's 100m hurdles semi-finals on Friday by sisters Tiffany Porter and Cindy Ofili.

    Porter, a bronze medallist at the World Championships in 2013, raced to a comfortable victory in her heat, in a time of 12.73 seconds.

    Her younger sister, Ofili, finished fourth in her heat, in 12.97, to also progress to the semi-finals.

  93. Sayers' first attempt

    Women's javelin qualifcation

    Not the best of start for Great Britain's Goldie Sayers as she throws 58.28m, well short of the qualifying distance of 63.50m.

    Still two more attempts for the 33-year-old, who has a good deal of strapping around her right knee.

  94. 'Hopefully he will have gained something'

    We mentioned that Robbie Grabarz had not made it into the high jump final.

    "It was not to be for Robbie Grabarz. But he recently went for knee surgery and the surgeon couldn't believe he walked in as his knee had been so bad. Hopefully he will have gained something from competing here."

    The first medals of the day have already been handed out. And China claimed a one-two finish in the 20km walk to win their first gold medal of the World Championships.

    Liu Hong and Lu Xiuzhi entered the Bird's Nest stadium side by side at the end of the race.

    But it was world record holder Liu who took gold in 1 hour 27 minutes 45 seconds, with Lu a stride behind. Lyudmyla Olyanovska of Ukraine won the bronze medal, 28 seconds behind the Chinese walkers.

  97. Sayers back in the Bird's Nest

    Women's javelin qualification

    Thirty-eight centimetres. That was all that separated Goldie Sayers from an Olympic Games bronze medal.

    The Bird's Nest stadium in Beijing was the scene when Sayers finished fourth in the women's javelin final in 2008. Her best throw was 65.75m, agonisingly short of the 66.13m effort from Christina Obergfoll that won a bronze.false

    But can the 33-year-old Sayers book her place in the final? The first section in the javelin qualification has just started and we will be bringing you regular updates. She needs 63.50m to qualify for the final.

    High jump qualification

    It has been a bad summer for Australian bowler Mitchel Starc, after losing the Ashes to England.

    Mitchell Starc

    But his brother Brandon is having a happier time in Beijing, where the younger of the Starc siblings has qualified for the final of the high jump in a personal best of 2.31m.

    Wonder if he is as handy with a cricket ball?

  99. Grabarz misses out on final

    High jump qualification

    Robbie Grabarz

    Earlier today, Great Britain's Robbie Grabarz failed to reach the final of the men's high jump.

    Needing 2.31m for automatic qualification, the Olympic bronze medallist could only manage 2.26m.

    Grabarz, who only returned from knee surgery this year, said: "I’m just happy to be here, I shouldn’t be saying that – but I am. 

    "Surgery was just a year ago, and my body feels great – I just need to get technically fit, which shouldn’t be too difficult."

    Olympic champion Ivan Ukhov also failed to qualify.

  100. Remember me?

    Men's 200m final

    A touching / bizarre moment at the end of Usain Bolt's medal ceremony.

    The photographer who crashed into him after the 200m final yesterday is waiting for Bolt so he can give the Jamaican a present, apologise for the incident and wrap what appears to be some kind of friendship bracelet around his wrist.

    Bolt looks a bit bemused, but the pair shake hands and are friends, apparently.
