  1. Good night!

    Well that's that. The first Diamond League of the Olympic season done. I doubt there will be a wetter one.

    Next stop on the Diamond League tour is Doha on Friday.

    But that's it from our team tonight, thanks for joining us!

  3. 'I want to get better from here'

    Here's what Dina Asher-Smith had to say about her impressive 100m victory.

    "I feel really good. Conditions were far from ideal for sprinting but the most important thing is to come away with a good result and a win and I was very happy to do that.

    "I think all in all today was more of an experience but the only thing that can indicate Tokyo is the Olympic final itself.

    "I want to stay focused, do well and get better from here."

    Billo: Laura Muir. Against the wind in the home straight. Impressive. Again. Blitzed the field in that last lap, no-one close; a 62.3 last lap.

    Jenifer Moore: Lovely run @lauramuiruns#GatesheadDL#bbcathletics Rain was never going to bother you!

    BBC Sport athletics commentator

    Despite the wind and rain that's a good workout for Laura Muir but I'm sure she'll look forward to warmer runs later this year!

  7. Muir wins

    Women's 1500m

    Laura Muir makes it look so easy.

    She crosses the line in 4:03.74, having opened up quite the lead on the rest of the field.

    Morocco's Rababe Arafi places second in 4:07.73, and GB's Katie Snowden is third.

    Eilish McColgan slips back into sixth.

  8. Post update

    Women's 1500m

    Eilish McColgan continues to push hard at the front with Laura Muir on her heel.

    As the bell goes, Muir steps on the gas and eases out to the front. And the gap is getting wider...

  9. Post update

    Women's 1500m

    With one lap down, Laura Muir and Eilish McColgan are up near the front.

    McColgan pushes past Winnie Nanyondo to set the pace after two laps, and Muir moves in behind her.

  10. Ricketts wins triple jump

    Jamaica's Shanieka Ricketts wins the women's triple jump with a 14.29m effort in the final round.

    Portugal's Patricia Mamona is second, with GB's Naomi Ogbeta third.

    Ogbeta had earlier jumped 14.29m, but couldn't repeat it in the decisive round.

  11. Muir 'in PB shape'

    Women's 1500m (20:51 BST)

    At a news conference yesterday, European and world medallist Laura Muir said she was in fine form ahead of tonight's race, which is her first race in Britain in 15 months.

    "I think I am in PB shape," she said. "I've been running a few PB sessions. My PB is 3:55 so if I can get close to that or better than that then that would be fantastic.

    "I don't know what racing opportunities there will be to run super, super fast but I certainly think that's the ball park I'm in at the moment.

    "I've not competed on British soil for a long time so it would be lovely to come back and get a win.

    "I've been lucky to have a very solid training block and training over the winter a lot better than the previous year. I'm excited to put that on the track in races this summer."

  12. Muir up next

    Women's 1500m (20:51 BST)

    One more race to come on the track this evening, and it's the women's 1500m.

    Britain's Laura Muir is one of five Brits in this one, and she's been in fine form lately, winning the 800m in California a week ago after finishing second at the Golden Games.

    She faces Belgium's European indoor champion Elise Vanderelst, as well as fellow Brits Eilish McColgan, Adelle Tracey, Erin Wallace and Katie Snowden.

    Snowden set a new 4:02.98 PB last weekend in California.

  13. Bednarek eases to 200m victory

    A MASSIVE win for Kenny Bednarek in 20.33. He leaves the rest of the field in his dust as he takes his first Diamond League victory.

    The Canadians follow him across the line, Aaron Brown in second in 20.79 and Andre de Grasse third.

    Adam Gemili places sixth.

  14. Post update

    Men's 200m (20:40 BST)

    Next up on the track is the men's 200m and Britain's Adam Gemili is in this one.

    He takes on Olympic silver medallist Andre de Grasse of Canada in this one, as well as the in-form American Kenny Bednarek.

    Could Bernard Williams' stadium record of 20.23 from 2001 be under threat in this race? Perhaps not given the weather...let's find out.

  15. Ab-solutely fabulous from Dina

    Mike Henson

    BBC Sport at Gateshead International Stadium

    That was very commanding from Dina Asher-Smith. The 25-year-old revealed yesterday that her training sessions under coach John Blackie have been all about strength.

    Apparently they have featured a wince-inducing 300 reps of various abdominal exercises.

    You could see all that strength as she held her form to hold off Sha'Carri Richardson in the final quarter of the race.

  16. Krukowski wins javelin

    Poland's Marcin Krukowski has won the men's javelin, but I can't see that hat unfortunately.

    He throws 81.18m in the playoff, way ahead of Trinidad and Tobago's 2012 Olympic champion Keshorn Walcott. Kim Amb is third after a foul for him in the final showdown.

    Kristian: Dina Asher-Smith exceptional once again

    Louise Corcoran: Dina!! Absolutely smashed it in a world class field. So good.

    Ian Robbins: Yes Dina!! Superb win and a massive statement, nailed it from gun to tape

  19. Asher-Smith wins 100m

    "Oh sweet, I won!"

    Dina Asher-Smith was a bit puzzled at the end of that one, but that smile soon breaks out when she realises.

    She clocks 11.35s to take a VERY comfortable win, with Sha'Carri Richardson second, and Marie-Josee Ta Lou third.
