  6. 'Dream come true'

    Men's club throw F32 - Stephen Miller wins bronze

    Time to hear from Stephen Miller, who at the age of 37, has just picked up a bronze medal in the men's club throw F32. The London 2012 Paralympics is the only one of the last six where Miller has not won a medal.

    "To be here again at the stadium where it all went wrong in 2012, and I put it right today," Miller told Channel 4. "To get on the podium at this stadium is a dream come true. It is the first time I have been on the World Championships podium since 2011 and you can't describe how good it is to perform in front of this crowd.

    "I said before this championships that whatever happens I would continue so I'm hoping to make it to my seventh Paralympics in 2020. It was an OK performance, not my best, but I have a habit of winning medals at championships. A lot of those guys have beaten me this year, I have a lot of work to do to catch the top two, but I believe I have the ability to throw that far and I just have to make it happen.

    "GB are the best supported team and the best prepared team and it shows - keep buying the lottery tickets. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and hopefully there is more to come."

  7. World Para-athletics to stay in London?

    The boss of this year's London World Para-athletics Championships wants the event to make an immediate return to the city in 2019.

    Numerous athletes have called for the event to stay at London Stadium.

    More than 230,000 people will attend this year's championships, with more tickets sold than in all eight of the previous championships combined.

    "I'd love it back here in two years' time," said Ed Warner, co-chair of London 2017. "This call from the athletes for it to return here has come organically. Athletes from around the world think this is the place to be.

    "Can we make it happen? I hope so. I've had some interesting early conversations. I think the door is ajar. The International Paralympic Committee have loved what they've seen."

  8. 'Heartbreaking'

    Men's 800m T34 - Isaac Towers wins bronze, Ben Rowlings comes sixth

    Ben Rowlings

    Some quotes now from Ben Rowlings, who came sixth in the men's 800m T34 final, with fellow Brit Isaac Towers taking a bronze medal.

    "I am gutted," Rowlings tells BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. "I felt really good up to the last 40 metres and to be that close to winning a medal was heartbreaking. I have to dust myself off and come back. I timed it well, I was boxed in at 500m.

    "Isaac is strong, he did it when it mattered, he was better than me on the day and had a stronger finish. If I had to get beaten by anyone it is good it was a Brit. It is the closest either of us have been to winning a race like that. Everything up to the last 40m was perfect, so it is heartbreaking."

  9. 'An absolute treat'

    "It just brings back memories from 2012, I love everyone in the crowd and I can't thank them enough for supporting us. It is just amazing.

    "I have to just keep doing what I am doing, more technique, more footwork."

    She says: "I'm really pleased to come out with another medal.

    "It is always tough racing against Hannah Cockroft, but amazing. The crowd have been so amazing, their cheers got me through that last 100 metres and the crowd really lifted me.

    "It is a valuable experience and I have learned a lot about tactics, I just need to work on my strength."

    Hannah Cockroft is totally dominant. It must be difficult for the others. Hannah's technique is very strong and very powerful.

    It is going to be two or three years then we will see some real racing in the T34.

    Hannah Cockfroft
  14. 'I felt rough, I've been in bed all day'

    Women's 400m T34 - Hannah Cockroft wins gold, Kare Adenegan takes bronze

    Three-time 2017 World Para-athletics Championship gold medallist Hannah Cockroft has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. She said: "I was confident up until yesterday when I got full of cold and felt rough - I have been in bed all day.

    "All the way around I was thinking 'I am not getting this'.

    "I know I'm not 100%. The noise tonight is phenomenal, I am going to miss racing here, I want to come back really soon. It is just a massive honour to put this top on and represent my country."

    American Alexa Halko, 17 came second, with another Brit, Kare Adenegan, 16, coming third.

    "I have two young girls, 16 and 17, who are chasing me down," added Cockroft. "I just want to keep going and still be the best in the world - that is the motivation and I aim to be here a little longer."

  15. Post update

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    And breathe....

    Right, let's get some analysis from our BBC Radio 5 live sports extra experts and hear from some of the competitors who have been making the headlines tonight.

  16. Bronze for Miller

    Men's club throw F32

    Another medal for Great Britain, and it comes from Stephen Miller in the men's club throw F32.

    It comes a year after he won a bronze medal at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

    That is two gold medals and four bronze medals for Great Britain in only an hour.

  17. Duke aims to complete the set

    Men's shot put F41 final

    Kyron Duke competes in the F41 shot put and first came to prominence at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, where he also competed in the F40 javelin.

    The 24-year-old from Cwmbran has won silver and bronze medals in World Championships, but gold has eluded him so far.

    "I have plenty of bronzes and silvers, it's just that one extra shiny one that needs to be added to the collection," said Duke.

    "A home games is always extra special. You get to go here, there, everywhere, around the world, but when it's a big competition and it's at home it makes it 100% better."

  18. 'As soon as I heard the cheer I knew I had a medal'

    Men's 400m T54 - Chiassaro wins bronze

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Richard Chiassaro has just been talking to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. He said: "It is amazing to finally come out and do what I can in my favourite event. As soon as I heard the cheer I knew I had got a medal.

    "I knew if I stayed in touch within touching distance I could just pick it up in the home straight. Everyone in that race could have won it.

    "My son said to me he was feeling nervous, he is only six and I just wanted to win a medal for him. At six he doesn't understand that I don't win every race so it is good for him to see me win a medal.

    "I am going to work on being in the bunch and my starts as well. My top speed is better than most of the other guys but I need to work on the starts."

  19. 'He took it to another gear'

    Men's 400m T54 - Chiassaro wins bronze

    Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

    11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "In the final bend, Richard Chiassaro was sixth with 120m to go, but then he took it up another gear.

    "If you had asked me halfway through it didn't look like he would have a chance of a medal.

    "At that moment of racing, he would not have thought of what happened to him in the 800m. In that race he went down really hard, got dragged across the track and got run over by another chair.

    "To come back was a really tough challenge and fair play to him for pushing through the line here. That is why you take every single push."

  20. Chiassaro wins bronze

    Men's 400m T54

    A tough week has a happy ending for Richard Chiassaro as he just about gets a bronze in the men's 400m T54 final, edging out Switzerland's Marcel Hug by two hundredths of a second.

    Yassine Gharbi of Tunisia wins gold and Kenny van Weeghel gets silver.
