    Christian Coleman

  2. Catch up: Cracking Coleman

    And finally, the showpiece finale.

    If you're catching up on anything we guess it will be the men's 100m final, where Christian Coleman underlined why he's so hyped.

  8. Who gets the medals?

    Christian Coleman
  9. 'It's an incredible time'

    Coleman wins 100m gold

    Christian Coleman: "I am humble, I am just here to win titles.

    "It is an incredible time, it is a PB for me. I think the sky's the limit, I think I still have a lot of things I can work on and improve, I think I can keep dropping my time."

  10. The fastest men ever...

    So here are the list of the 10 fastest men to ever walk the face of this earth. Well, the 10 who competed at least. There may well be an absolute flying machine somewhere on earth who simply used his gifts to catch buses and get the chippy tea home while still piping hot.

    Christian Coleman's 9.76 makes him the sixth fastest man ever. It is however only the joint 15th fastest time ever as the likes of Bolt have run a handful of rapid times at the top of leaderboard.

    Top 10
  11. Where are the people?

    The men's 100m final is always a spectacle. Maybe not so much in Doha though if these images from Lets Run reporter Jonathan Gault are anything to go by...

  12. 'It's incredible'

    Christian Coleman

    World champion Christian Coleman: "World champion, it sounds incredible, too good to be true. For me to make it here and come out with a gold is incredible. I was just out of college two years ago and not many people expected me to win a silver. I expected to come out here and be great and upgrade my silver medal.

    "It's hard to compartmentalise and not think about Tokyo - that's huge to go to an Olympics. I will be expected to go there and medal but the work doesn't stop. Hopefully I can make the team."

  13. Gatlin game for Tokyo...

    Justin Gatlin - silver medallist over the 100m - speaks to BBC Sport: "This season was a testament to my endurance and will. I had setbacks this season. I just wanted to stay focused on this race and give it all I got for this season.

    "Christian has ran a spectacular season, great times. I couldn't say it was a shock that he would do a great job here. I had to hold on and stay strong in my technique."

    Asked if he will be at Tokyo 2020 he says: "I'm coming. I'm going to be better. I'm ready."

  14. The end of Gatlin?

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

    Justin gatlin

    He said he wants to go to Tokyo - I don't know! He just continues to deliver, he's so durable.

  15. Post update

    A reminder that if you've been watching the coverage which has gone off air on TV, you can continue watching in the live stream at the top of this page. Just click play.

    All that's left on the agenda competition wise today are the men and women taking on the 50km walk.

  16. Post update

    It's worth remembering Christian Coleman is only 23. He holds the world record over 60m indoors so we know he has a start that leaves rivals with work to do.

    He will be itching for Tokyo 2020.

  17. Where that time ranks

    Christian Coleman's time is the fastest in a world championship final since Usain Bolt's other-worldly 9.58...

  18. Metal chasing...

    Great Britain yet to strike a blow on the medal table but there's plenty of hot and humid time to get a few in the bag in Doha.

  19. Post update

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

    There were quick times - it didn't have the pop and the sizzle that you normally have, that's a result of the post-Bolt era.

    Coleman ran away with it. We always knew the second and third-placed medals would be up for grabs.
