Gabby Logan presents live coverage from the IAAF Diamond League meet at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham.

Some of the world’s biggest stars are set to compete in Birmingham, including Olympic and new Commonwealth Long Jump champion Greg Rutherford, and fellow Briton Mo Farah, the Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m gold medallist.

Farah won the 5,000m race in Birmingham last summer, bursting clear of Ethiopian duo Yenew Alamirew and Hagos Gebrhiwet over the final 200m. The 31-year-old will be eager to show he is back to his best after pulling out of last month’s Commonwealth Games because of illness.
