  1. Goodbye

    And that is the end for another great, golden day at the World Para-athletics Championships.

    There is just one day to go and lots of British interest throughout both sessions so we will be back at 11:30 BST with live coverage from London Stadium.

    Thanks for joining us tonight and hopefully see you again in the morning. Until then, thanks and goodbye.

  2. GB closing in on best modern medal tally

    Gold medal

    British trio Sophie Hahn, Aled Davies and Georgie Hermitage each claimed their second gold medals on the ninth day of the World Para-athletics Championships in London.

    Hahn won the T38 100m, emulating her achievement in the 200m, with team-mate Kadeena Cox second.

    Hermitage added T37 100m gold to her 400m title and Davies, already the F42 discus champion, claimed shot put gold. Jonathan Broom-Edwards took silver in the T44 high jump.

    It takes Britain's total medal tally to 35, surpassing the 31 won in Doha two years ago and closing in on their best modern tally of 38, set in 2011.

  3. Davies throws world record to win gold

    Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

    Aled Sion Davies

    Aled Davies set a new world record to win gold in the F42 shot put at the World Para-athletics Championships.

    Having already claimed gold in the F42 discus, this is the third time in succession the Welshman has triumphed in both events at the competition.

    Davies' first throw was a World Championships record of 16.02 metres and his second a 17.52m world record. Iran's Sajad Mohammadian won silver with a throw of 14.44m, while German Frank Tinnemeier was third.

    Davies was born with talipese and hemi-hemilia, which means his right leg is missing bones, muscle and ligaments. The 26-year-old from Bridgend has focused on shot put recently, after discus was dropped for Rio 2016.

    But victory in the shot put in London completed his triple double by claiming the discus and shot put titles at three consecutive Worlds.

  4. McKillop clinches double gold in London

    Michael McKillop

    Ireland's Michael McKillop completed a middle distance double by winning the T37 1500m final at the World Para-athletics Championships in London.

    McKillop, 37, stretched clear to beat Canadian rival Liam Stanley by 10 metres after a race mostly run at a slow pace.

    It means the man from Glengormley retains the two titles he won at the 2015 championships in Doha. The T37 classification is for athletes with a mild form of cerebral palsy.

    McKillop has not been beaten in a major international event since the 2006 championships.

  5. Post update

    Right, let's have a look at some of the main headlines from tonight.

  6. Coming up tomorrow

    Tomorrow is the final day of the World Para-Athletics Championships.

    Sammi Kinghorn has the chance to sign off the championships with a double medal success in the T53 100m (12:45) and T53 800m (18:51).

    Also, Mickey Bushell will seek to repeat his London 2012 gold medal triumph in the T53 100m (heats at 10:45, final, if he qualifies, at 12:30).

  7. 'It has been phenomenal'

    Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record and wins gold

    BBC Radio 5 live

    World record holder and shot put F42 gold medallist Aled Davies has just spoken to BBC Radio 5 live.

    He said: "I was happy to say the least. Phenomenal. This crowd got me to a different level and I would thank every single person if I could. What I wanted to do was be at the forefront of the event and the aim is 20m and it is something I think I could do.

    "Discus has been on the back-burner since London as it is not in the Paralympic programme so it has been about the shot put and we think we can go further, we were aiming for 18m.

    "After the embarrassment of the Commonwealth Games, I knew I had to make a lot of changes and have a coach that believed in me and I believed in him. We are only two years into our programme and he has already put two metres on my shot.

    "There is so much I can improve on, this is just a start. It has been phenomenal and I saw an opportunity when I could get a throw in being the main event. I'm glad the crowd did get absorbed and I could show them something they have not seen before."

  8. Great Britain glory

    Three gold medals and two silver medals today. Another pretty decent day for Great Britain.

    This is the total so far, with one day to go. Incredible.

    Medals

  10. 'I just want to give him a hug'

    Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record and wins gold

    Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson

    11-time Paralympic champion on BBC Radio 5 live

    Aled Davies is incredible, I first met him when he was a skinny little kid, he has developed so much and put himself through so much, strengthening up.

    The emotion on his face, I just want to give him a hug. I have had a yellow card from an official for hugging an athlete before, so we would probably both get yellow cards.

  11. BreakingGold for Aled Davies

    Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

    The big man is in tears as he waves to the crowd, who respond with a standing ovation as Aled Davies is confirmed as the World Para-athletics Championships gold medallist in the men's shot put F42.

    What an incredible start to the competition it was as he set a new championship record of 16.02 metres with his first throw, before destroying the competition with a new world record of 17.52.

    That is two golds in London this week for the Welshman, who also grabbed gold in the discus. Awesome, absolutely awesome.

  13. Davies heading for gold

    Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

    Back to the men's shot put F42 and Aled Davies is still heading for gold, after his world record throw of 17.52m in his second attempt of six.

    He has recorded three no throws since then, but still holds a lead of more than three metres, with Britain's 17th gold medal of these Championships, and their third of the evening, set to be confirmed in the next hour.

  14. Gold for Wallace

    Men's 200m T44

    A result from earlier on, and it was a golden evening for American sprinter Jarryd Wallace, who has taken victory in the 200m after a bronze earlier in the week in the 100m.

    It's not all about the British stars here

    I had to clamber around a group of starstruck fans as I left the venue last night.

    Turned out it was a hoard of Finnish folk hunting down sprint hero Toni Piispanen, who has won T51 100m silver here.

  16. Meet disability coaching's unsung heroes

    #GetInspired

    Para-athletics has gone from strength to strength in recent years but there's still work to do, especially in the field of coaching.

    Statistics show nearly 20% of working-age people in the UK have a disability. But only 6% of sports coaches are disabled and of coaches who have gained a qualification since 2009, the number drops to 2%.

    Here are the stories of some of unsung heroes helping to bridge the coaching gap...

  17. 'It went well'

    Women's 100m T37 - Georgie Hermitage wins gold

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Some quotes now from the second British gold medallist of tonight.

    Georgie Hermitage, who just stormed to victory in the women's 100m T37, has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live.

    She says: "I didn't get the best of starts, I was aware of the pressure on my outside, but it went well and I'm happy to get the win.

    "Holds (at the start) for me are not great as I jitter, it was not great and that is why I was sluggish at the start but once I got up and going it went well."

  18. Post update

    Men's shot put F42 - Britain's Aled Davies breaks the world record

    Aled Davies has only had three out of six throws in the men's shot put F42. A championship record, followed by a world record, followed by a foul. He has a lead of just under four metres at almost the halfway stage of the final.

    It is going to take an incredible turnaround from someone to deny the Brit a second gold medal after he took discus glory earlier this week.

  19. 'He knew he had a world record'

    Aled Davies knew, he knew he had a world record with that throw.

    The Welsh beast let a flood of emotion out and a massive roar, it just needed the board to show he's nailed a world record of 17.52m.

  20. World record for Britain's Aled Davies

    Men's shot put F42

    That hard work is certainly paying off already in the men's shot put for Aled Davies.

    His first throw goes to a distance of 16.02 metres, a new World Championships record.

    Well, it was a record, before he goes even further minutes later. Look what it means to him as he screams out in delight.

    The distance is in, and it is huge. It is a new world record of 17.52m, beating his previous world record of 16.13m. Incredible stuff.
