World Indoor Athletics Championships

The BBC has live coverage of all four days of the World Indoor Athletics Championships from 1-4 March in Birmingham.

American Christian Coleman is hot favourite to win the men's 60m gold after he broke the 20-year-old 60m indoor world record clocking 6.34 seconds at the US Indoor Championships.

It eclipsed Maurice Greene's mark of 6.39 seconds in 1998 and 2001, although Coleman's run needs to be ratified by the IAAF, the world governing body.

GB interest

British medal hopefuls include Katarina Johnson-Thompson (pentathlon) and European indoor champions Laura Muir (1500m and 3,000m), Asha Philip (60m) and Andrew Pozzi (60m hurdles), who all confirmed their places with wins at the British Indoor Championships last month.

London 2012 Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford won't compete after withdrawing on Wednesday to focus on regaining full fitness before the European Championships in August.
