  1. 1725: 

    That's just about that for the 2013 London Grand Prix, a two-day athletics bonanza that brought memories of the 2012 Olympics flooding back. But don't go thinking the Anniversary Games are over - Sunday sees the Paralympic event come to town and we'll be back here to guide you through proceedings. Keep across the BBC Sport website for analysis and reaction to the past couple of days - if there is any news on Jess Ennis-Hill's fitness, we'll bring it to you as quickly as we can. Next stop? Moscow.

    Elizabeth Hudson, BBC Sport at the IPC World Athletics Championships in Lyon

    "In Lyon, American wheelchair racer Tatyana McFadden creates her own bit of history with victory in the T54 400m for her sixth gold medal of a week in which she has won more individual gold medals at one para-athletics championships than any other athlete.

    "The 23-year-old, who was born in a Russian orphanage before being adopted by American Deborah McFadden, had earlier won the T54 100, 200, 800, 1500 and 5,000m events. 'I can't believe I have done 12 races in six events here - it is pretty insane,' she told BBC Sport afterwards. Britain's Jade Jones finished eighth."

    Listen to coverage on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

    Colin Jackson, Former world record holder and BBC Sport expert

    "I think the athletes enjoyed being here today. We think Jessica is healthy and I know she will go back to drawing board. It was about how well she ran today and not how fast."

    Steve Cram, BBC Sport athletics commentator

    "This has been a knowledgeable crowd and it's going to be tough for Moscow to recreate this atmosphere."

  5. 1709: 
    Katarina Johnson-Thompson

    Winner Katarina Johnson-Thompson: "I love performing in this stadium. This year has been a bit of a weird one because of my injury and I was glad to win the Under-23 heptathlon last week. Now I'm looking forward to Moscow."

  6. 1706: 
    Jessica Ennis-Hill

    On finishing fourth in the 100m hurdles and eighth in the long jump: "This weekend was a big challenge just to see how my Achilles is holding up. I'm obviously frustrated and would have loved to have come into this event better prepared. I'm happy that the injury isn't giving me too much trouble but we will need to assess my recovery tomorrow. This was my first hurdle race since the Olympics and I just needed to get back into it . I hope to have a good idea in the next couple of days about my chances of making Moscow.

    "I'm frustrated. I'm not sure if I'll be there [at the World Championships]. I can't really say. I'm happy it's not given me trouble today but I need to see where I am tomorrow. I just need to assess each day. Some days it feels good and then other days it goes back to where it was. It's a frustrating road ahead of the World Championships, but I'll see how it is tomorrow and make some decisions."

  7. 1703: 
    MEN'S 4x100m RELAY
    Usain Bolt

    Usain Bolt, who ran the anchor leg for winners Racers Track Club: "It was not a full team but it's our first run-out as as team and we're close to Moscow now so we wanted to run fast to see where we're at. It was good. It's magnificent to be here, it feels just like the Olympics, the energy is incredible. I cant believe it, I seriously can't - it's beautiful. I can't explain what it gives you as an athlete. I'll go back to training and then Moscow. We'll look at the tapes and figure out what needs to get done."

    Mo Farah

    Christopher Murray: Mo Farah looking in great shape ahead of the worlds, comfortable yet classy victory

    Rachel T: That wasn't a race, it was a fun run! Go, Mo, go! Brilliant!

    Kamal CraigDowney JR: Mo Farah won men's 3000m and is there anyone in the Olympic stadium not performing the mobot ? Britain's Olympic hero wins 3000m :)

  9. 1656: 

    Usain Bolt anchors the Jamaican team (Racers Track Club) to victory in a meeting record time of 37.75. Britain - wait for it - dropped the baton.

  10. 1654: 
    MEN'S 4x100m RELAY

    Bolt v the Brits? Here goes...

  11. 1652: 

    An effort of 6.46m does it for the young Briton. Jess Ennis-Hill finishes eighth and last with a leap of 6.16m, but she'll be delighted to get the event under her belt and hope there is no adverse reaction in her left Achilles before the World Championships in Moscow.

  12. 1652: 
    MEN'S 3,000m
    Mo Farah

    Winner Mo Farah: "This is where I love to run and last year at the Olympics was a really big year for me. This is where I made my name. Each time I race I want to make my country proud. I am honoured to represent my country. Tomorrow I'll go to St Moritz to train ahead of the World Championships and hopefully I'll get on the podium there."

    Donovan Bailey, Double Olympic champion and BBC Radio 5 live expert

    "This is the reason why track and field needs someone like Mo and the stadium is packed just to see him run."

    Allison Curbishley, BBC Radio 5 live commentator

    "British athletics needs Mo just as much as the athletics world needs Usain Bolt. He's put on a show today and I don't think he even broke sweat."

  15. 1643: 
    MO FARAH WINS MEN'S 3,000m

    Is there anyone in the Olympic Stadium not performing the Mobot? Britain's Olympic hero wins in a personal best time of 7:36.85. He obliterates the field, crosses the line with arms outstretched, bends down to kiss the track. The fans are going wild. Treasure these moments, people.

  16. 1643: 
    MEN'S 3,000m

    Mo breaks clear! One lap to go... he's storming it... listen to the noise!

  17. 1642: 
    MEN'S 3,000m

    Two laps to go. Mo second behind Dathan Ritzenhein.

  18. 1641: 
    MEN'S 3,000m

    Mo looking comfortable in second place, just behind Bekele. Will he break Dave Moorcroft's long-standing British record? This isn't looking particularly quickly, but the only thing he will care about is winning.

  19. 1640: 
    MEN'S 3,000m

    "I want that [Olympic] feeling again," Farah told BBC Sport before the race. "It's the feeling I keep looking for and it makes you more of a fighter than anything else. I'm training well, I'm in the right place and I'm happy. I've got great training partners and everything is good. I want to win medals, make my county proud, make the people proud and do well for myself. It's going to be tough but I want to go out there and put in 110%, that's all I can do."

  20. 1635: 
    MEN'S 3,000m

    Ear-splitting noise engulfs the Olympic Stadium as Britain's double Olympic gold medallist is introduced and he responds by performing the Mobot. Rain is starting to fall but, frankly, who cares?

  21. 1632: 
    MEN'S 3,000m

    AKA Mo Time...

  22. 1631: 

    London Mayor Boris Johnson: "I think it's absolutely incredible how many people have come HERE. It's more relaxed this year and we're proving something more important - that this stadium has a lot more to offer in the future. In London we are doing a huge amount to get people involved in sports. We've coached 19,000 people to swim. We've got football and tennis training.

    "The sporting legacy was the most difficult thing to deliver and the big challenge. I think the government has done really well. I'm fanatical about sports and I want to see more sports in school. We're putting £40m in grassroots sports in London as part of the legacy plan. "

  23. 1630: 
    WOMEN'S 100m
    Blessing Okagbare

    Winner Blessing Okagbare: "I just wanted to put up a good race and I'm so excited. For me, I just want to do my best and I've been working hard and have tried to stay on top of my recovery. I'm hoping when it comes to Moscow that I'll be ready."

  24. 1624: 

    Another African record (10.79) for the rangy Nigerian as she recovers from an average start to power to victory and celebrate in style. It was a poor start from Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and she never recovered, finishing fourth in 10.94. Barbara Pierre of the United States is second with a joint personal best of 10.85 and Trinidad's Kelly-Ann Baptiste third in 10.93.


    Pauline McVey: The more I hear/see, the more I enjoy the punditry of @paulajradcliffe. Great addition to #bbcathletics TV coverage.

    Ads Gosling: Boris Johnson on the BBC Athletics I hope he entered the studio on a zip wire

    Complex simplicity: Wow it's been a year since the Olympics, time flies man. Love watching athletics man.

  26. 1624: 
    WOMEN'S 100m

    Carmelita Jeter has pulled out so you would think this comes down to Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Blessing Okagbare...

  27. 1622: 
    MEN'S 110m HURDLES

    Aries Merritt on his disqualification: "I feel like I was too close to the first hurdle and nipped it with my trail leg, but I'm thankful I'm not injured."

  28. 1622: 
    MEN'S 110m HURDLES
    William Sharman

    Runner-up William Sharman: "It feels fantastic. We've got a full stadium and 13.2 has been a long time coming for me. I'm disappointed Aries fell and when he fell I lost concentration. I heard the crowd screaming and it put me off, but there's more to come."

  29. 1620: 
    MEN'S 110m HURDLES

    Winner David Oliver: "I've just got to improve the beginning part of my race. You can only control your own hurdles and I did enough to win the race."

    Aimee Lewis, BBC Sport at the Olympic Stadium

    "Renaud Lavillenie sets the bar at 6.02 in the men's pole vault. He clears it comfortably and then goes cock-a-hoop, waving his arms in the air and sprinting towards his camp somewhere in the front row. He's just set a world leading time and broken the Diamond League record so his exuberant celebration is understandable. More news: The confident Frenchman is going to attempt to break the world record. Stand by. "

  31. 1616: 

    Extraordinary scenes in the pole vault as Renaud Lavillenie of France clears height after heigh to close in on Sergey Bubka's world record of 6.14m.

  32. 1615: 

    Britain's Katarina Johnson-Thompson leads the way after three rounds with a best leap of 6.44m. Jess Ennis-Hill down in seventh with a 6.16, but three jumps still to come.

  33. 1608: 

    Brilliant start from Britain's Will Sharman and he's right in the mix... Olympic champion Aries Merritt and David Oliver there too... Merritt clatters a hurdle and that's his race over! Sharman and Oliver power on... Oliver comes through in 13.20 with Sharman a superb second in 13.26, a personal best.

  34. 1607: 
    MEN'S 110m HURDLES

    Merritt to do what he did a year ago and clinch the win? Britain's William Sharman for a surprise win? We're about to find out...

    Steve Cram, BBC Sport athletics commentator

    "Conditions are pretty good. Mo is preparing for Moscow and if he wants to run hard today he can do. He's been on a quest to win medals in the last few years and I hope he can give something back for the fans to take home today. "

  36. 1606: 

    Less than half an hour until #MoTime and the anticipation is building nicely. Many have predicted that the double Olympic champion will break David Moorcroft's long-standing British record - do you agree?


    More from British Athletics Paralympic head coach Paula Dunn (on the pre-IPC World Championships target of 25 medals, including eight golds, which they have surpassed with 28 medals, including 11 golds so far):

    "I thought we could make the target of 25 but 11 golds is just a bonus. I thought if everyone went well we could get eight or nine so 11 is fantastic."

    Aimee Lewis, BBC Sport at the Olympic Stadium
    Brimin Kiprop Kipruto and Gilbert Kirui

    "Whoever is in charge of the fireworks deemed the close finish between Brimin Kiprop Kipruto and Gilbert Kirui in the 3,000m steeplechase worthy of pyrotechnics. Fireworks aren't quite as spectacular in daylight, though, nor as impressive as Kipruto's time of 8:06.86 - a meeting record. The crowd were in full voice as the Kenyan pair battled it out on the home straight. What a finish."

    BBC Radio 5 live

    As we wait for Mo Farah to take to the track at #MoTime (1632 BST), listen to Mike Costello's BBC Radio 5 live commentary to relive Farah's 10,000m victory at last summer's Olympics.

  40. 1603: 
    WOMEN'S 400m
    Christine Ohuruogu is interviewed

    Winner Christine Ohuruogu: "I didn't want to lose on home ground. I wanted to give a good performance. A wins a win, but this is not where it ends for us and we will do a bit of tinkering and see where we go from there."

  41. 1557: 

    It's been a decent season for Christine Ohuruogu so far and that continues with a superb win on home soil. It's a season's best time 50.00 and that puts her bang on course for an assault on the World Championships gold medal. The local girl receives a rousing ovation from the crowd and establishes a slender lead going into the final 100m. Ohuruogu appears to be tiring, only to come up with a timely kick in the closing stages to secure victory.


    We have been asking where fans rate Mo Farah in comparison to other all-time great British athletes - send us your views on Twitter via #MoTime

    Leoooo: He already is an all time legend, but if he starts to break some records he might be considered the best.

    Jed Asher: Surely has to be one of the very best, recent display in 1500m shows he is a world class athlete over multiple distances.

    Brian Fantana: His ability is immense, but purely for his attitude, the greatest of all time.

  43. 1555: 
    WOMEN'S 400m

    Christine Ohuruogu, this is your time...

  44. 1554: 

    Jess Ennis-Hill starts with a leap of 6.13m. No sign of discomfort in that troublesome left Achilles, although she is taking off from her right foot.

  45. 1552: 
    Brimin Kiprop Kipruto

    It's a UK allcomers record of 8:06.86 for Brimin Kiprop Kipruto, who pips fellow Kenyan Gilbert Kirui to the line. In fact, Kenya takes the top four places. Kipruto, the Beijing Olympics gold medallist, is not even good enough to make the Kenyan World Championships team. Can we have him?

  46. 1543: 

    "I was good for the first hurdle and after the fourth it went horribly wrong so I decided to shut it down to avoid injury. I always show up for the championships and I'll be ready for Moscow. I started the season late, its only my fourth race and I'll get it right. I know what is needed now."

  47. 1542: 

    More from British Athletics Paralympic head coach Paula Dunn: "The performances of teenagers like Sophie Hahn, Scott Jones and Sophie Kamlish have surprised me. I knew how good they were but they have surpassed what I expected and I am very proud of them for coming to this environment against the best in the world and holding their own.

    "It is going to be more different for them now but we are used to having teenage medallists - Aled Davies and Hannah Cockroft were teenagers when they won gold in New Zealand at the last World Championships. We will work with their coaches and families to help them progress. You don't rest on your laurels - you enjoy the moment but then it is back to training and managing your commitments."


    Dan Tunnicliffe: 4x100 team. Can't remember a more impressive British line up!

    Mark Rhodes: Should have had a gold medal ceremony for Valerie Adams in front of excellent crowd.

    Laurz 'TeamL' TeDz: Allyson Felix was under pressure there! But Anikya had a good race still.

  49. 1539: 

    "I cant believe it's been a year and I'm happy to be back. These are just final preparations for Moscow, I've got a little more work to do but I'm ready for the Worlds. I've been taking it easy, making sure my body is ready and this is my last race before Moscow. "

    Allyson Felix
  50. 1532: 

    As expected, the Olympic champion wins her final race ahead of Moscow in a time of 22.41. She was made to work for it, especially in the final 50m, but came through strongly. Fellow American Shalonda Solomon was second in 22.50 and rising star Anthonique Strachan third in 22.63. Britain's Anyika Onuora will be delighted with a personal best 22.79 to finish fourth and Jodie Williams (23.06) is fifth.

  51. 1528: 
    WOMEN'S 200m

    Allyson Felix the firm favourite for this one, but watch out for last year's double world junior sprint champ Anthonique Strachan of Bahamas. Britain's Jodie Williams and Anyika Onuora also run.

    Donovan Bailey, Double Olympic champion and BBC Radio 5 live expert
    Michael Tinsley

    On Michael Tinsley: "He's had a phenomenal year. Sounds like he's tired but he looks very good and clearly with two weeks to go he's the one to beat. "

  53. 1529: 

    British Athletics Paralympic head coach Paula Dunn: "I've been so pleased with the way the team has performed in Lyon. We've had lots of season's bests and personal bests. You can count the number of poor performances on one hand and in a squad of 46, that is impressive. Everyone stepped it up from day one and they have done their team and country proud. It was important for the likes of Hannah Cockroft, Aled Davies, Josie Pearson and Richard Whitehead who all won gold last year to deliver again and they did. If the stars on your team deliver then it is gives great strength to the rest of your team. We've had great momentum and been on a real roll here."

    Elizabeth Hudson, BBC Sport at the IPC World Athletics Championships in Lyon

    "Some of the stars of last year's Paralympics take centre stage on the final day of the Anniversary Games tomorrow at the Olympics Stadium. Hannah Cockroft, Aled Davies, Josie Pearson and Richard Whitehead will all be in action, along with four-time London gold medallist David Weir, who will be competing in a special mile race.

    "The GB team has been in action at the IPC World Championships in Lyon this week and have won 28 medals so far, including 11 golds. British Athletics Paralympic head coach Paula Dunn has been telling BBC Sport about the mood in the camp as the global event comes to an end."

  55. 1523: 
    Ayanleh Souleiman and Augustine Choge

    Kenya's former Commonwealth 1500m champion Augustine Choge triumphs in three minutes 50.01 seconds, surviving a late scare as Dijbouti's Ayanleh Souleiman finishes strongly but is pipped into second place.

    Aimee Lewis, BBC Sport at the Olympic Stadium

    "The stadium isn't full to bursting, as it was last night, but that is perhaps because many spectators are taking time out from the action. An athletics fan has to do what an athletics fan has to do, I suppose, which is mainly buying drinks and burgers and whatnot. A lady to the left of me is peering through her binoculars, trying to decipher what's going on in the men's long jump. I know Chris Tomlinson received a red flag on his fifth jump. That is all I know, which isn't much. Standard."

  57. 1519: 
    MEN'S 400m HURDLES

    Winner Michael Tinsley: "It was a really good race today and the crowd motivated me. I wanted to show everyone I was ready to go to the worlds. My aim is to stay healthy and strong."

  58. 1516: 

    It was a poor start for the Russian, but he takes the spoils with a monster leap of 8.31m on his sixth and final attempt.

  59. 1513: 

    Not such good news for Chris Tomlinson, whose top jump of 7.99m is only good enough for fifth place and it looks like he will not be going to the World Championships in Moscow next month.

  60. 1508: 

    Michael Tinsley of the United States lays down a sizeable marker for the forthcoming World Championships with a time of 47.98. Rhys Williams looks in fine shape coming into the home straight but fades badly. Javier Culson is fifth and Felix Sanchez trundles home in, er, last place.

  61. 1507: 

    Felix Sanchez cried uncontrollably on the podium after winning London 2012 gold. We're unlikely to see a repeat today, but he starts as favourite for victory again despite a mixed season to date. Olympic bronze medallist Javier Culson also runs, as does Britain's Rhys Williams.

    Felix Sanchez cries on the Olympic podium

    Darren C: Is it too much to ask that the #AnniversaryGames becomes a regular things?

    Laurz 'TeamL' TeDz: Shelley-Ann Fraser-Price is slyly the female version of Bolt ta rahtid! She's too live!!

    Roeland Meijer: Watching #AnniversaryGames on the #BBC!! Athletics really doesn't get any better than this.Hopefully a lot of tv coverage of the #WC #Moscow.

  63. 1455: 

    It's an African record of 10.86 for the Nigerian and this is going to be some final at 1620 BST, with four women going under 11 seconds in the heats. A straight fight between Fraser-Pryce and Okagbare?

    Second in heat two was Barbara Pierre of the USA in 10.90 and third Ivory Coast's Murielle Ahoure in 10.98, with Britain's Asha Philip (11.33) and Annabelle Lewis (11.44) a disappointing seventh and eighth.

  64. 1453: 

    It won't make up for being denied Olympic gold by a drugs cheat but, as commentator Steve Cram says on BBC One, the New Zealander will have her time. She wins today with a throw of 20.90m and will head to the World Championships in high spirits.

    "I'm pretty happy today," says Adams. "Everything is looking good going to Moscow. It feels good to be back, it feels like deja vu. It's great to be here. I've got a world lead and I can't ask for anything more. I'm falling in love with London, I love it here."

  65. 1444: 

    Blimey, 10.77 for the Jamaican and that is a meeting record and the fastest time in the world this year. Stunning start and she cruised to the line. Carmelita Jeter, only recently back from injury and set to compete at next month's World Championships in Moscow via a wildcard, takes second in a season's best time of 10.93.

    British 22-year-old Desiree Henry is last but registers a personal-best 11.50. She tells Jonathan Overend on BBC Radio 5 live that London 2012 gave her the inspiration to strive for the top of women's sprinting.

    Gabby Logan and the BBC team

    Darren Lewis: Thank you for Cram, Foster and Logan on Anniversary Games weekend. Enthusiastic, encouraging and charismatic.

    Kelsie Humphrey: Watching the athletics really makes me gutted I didn't try harder as a kid.

    Claire: Super Saturday. Greatest night of sport in my life that. Was sobbing at every medal. So inspiring.

  67. 1444: 

    Time for a couple of speed queens - Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and silver medallist Carmelita Jeter. Desiree Henry goes for Great Britain in lane two...

  68. 1442: 
    Valerie Adams

    The popular New Zealander Valerie Adams, whose Olympic silver medal was upgraded to gold after Belarusian Nadzeya Ostapchuk failed a doping test, leads the women's shot with a meeting record of 20.82m.

  69. 1433: 

    The Olympic champion clocks 13.14 to ease through to the final, which takes place at 1607. "Obviously it is the first round and I wanted to save something for the final," Merritt tells BBC Sport's Phil Jones. "It feels great to be here and the crowd are amazing. I love the UK crowd."

    William Sharman of Great Britain comes through second in a season's-best 13.43 and Poland's Artur Noga third in 13.47.

  70. 1429: 

    An injury to Olympic champion Greg Rutherford has left Chris Tomlinson flying the British long jump flag today, and you'll be pleased to hear the shaggy-haired Newham and Essex Beagle currently leads the way with an effort of 7.99m on his first effort.

  71. 1427:  
    Elizabeth Hudson, BBC Sport at the IPC World Athletics Championships in Lyon

    "It is the final evening of track action here with four Britons aiming to add to the medal tally of 28. Kieran Tschernaiawsky goes in the F32/33/34 discus with wheelchair racer Jamie Carter in the men's T34 400m.

    "Jade Jones faces American wheelchair racing star Tatyana McFadden, who is bidding for an amazing sixth gold of the week in the T54 400m while Erin McBride is the last member of the GB team in action when the visually impaired teenager competes in the T13 400m."

    There will be coverage on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra from 1545 BST.


    Riz A: Regardless what they do or happens today. A year ago they all did us proud..

    Vick ✝: soooo excited to watch Jess Ennis-Hill, Christine Ohuruogu and Mo!

    Claire: Super Saturday. Greatest night of sport in my lifetime that. So inspiring. Makes me proud to be British


    Steve in Chelmsford via text on 81111: My Olympic memory...being with my 7 & 10 year old at the last night of athletic and seeing UB and Jamaica in 4 x 100m final and Mo win 5000m. Result = Two kids 'Inspired' to try their hardest.

  74. 1425: 
    WOMEN's 100m HURDLES
    Sally Pearson

    Winner Sally Pearson: "I was so nervous but I was ready and I knew I could do this. I just wanted to stay here and get over the finish line. I'm happy with it and its my season's best. I was scared of Jess in the warm-up, she's a freak and you never know what she's going to do!"

  75. 1424: 

    The American wins in 13.26 as Orlando Ortega of Cuba sees his lead turn to dust thanks to a fall at the third hurdle.

  76. 1422: 
    Jessica Ennis-Hill

    Jessica Ennis-Hill on finishing fourth: "This was very nerve-wracking. It was my first race back and I couldn't prepare as best as I wanted. I was disappointed with my time. I'm lacking speed work at the moment having just started training this week. I'm going to have a chat with my coach and try and put things right for Moscow."

  77. 1418: 

    Jess Ennis-Hill's coach Tony Minichiello: "She'll be a little bit disappointed with that time but you have to balance that with the fact she came through fourth. There was nobody on her left, which means she lost contact, so there's positives and negatives and we'll sit down and discuss it. She's probably where you'd expect her to be at the start of the season - she's not a hurdler but she certainly needs another race before Moscow. We want a time that opens up at around 12.80 - that's doable and would be very competitive in the World Championships heptathlon."

  78. 1412: 
    Sally Pearson and Kellie Wells

    Ennis-Hill makes a poor start as Sally Pearson establishes an early lead. The Olympic champion from Australia, who has endured injury problems of her own, accelerates away for the win in a season's-best 12.65. Ennis-Hill fights back impressively to snatch fourth in 13.08, with Tiffany Porter of Great Britain second (12.76) and Kellie Wells of the USA third (12.95).

  79. 1411: 

    A spine-tingling welcome for Ennis-Hill from the Olympic Stadium crowd. Into the blocks they go...

    Steve Cram, BBC Sport athletics commentator on Jess Ennis-Hill

    "This injury she's got has been niggling away at her. She is here today and it's a big day for her. Don't expect too much from her but she is extremely positive and she wants to win that gold medal in Moscow."

    Aimee Lewis, BBC Sport at the Olympic Stadium
    Mo Farah

    "A touch of pyrotechnics as Mo Farah enters the stadium, flames blasting out trackside. The fans like him. A lot. The spectators are told to stand up to do the 'Mo-Bot' and they need no persuading. The double Olympic champ admits nothing will eclipse London 2012 but says he wants to achieve as much as he can in the sport. The 3,000m British record perhaps? No sign of the forecasted heavy rain which is good news for those hoping Farah will break David Moorcroft's 31-year British mark this afternoon."

    Jess Ennis-Hill's coach Tony Minichiello: "We had to give the injury 48 hours and we checked it out again yesterday and it was al right. It is frustrating and athletes do get injured but you have to get on with it. She's had a good year, there's been a wedding as well. I want her to get through today injury free and then we will assess how she has done in the next 48 hours. We will have to see how she does after today before making the decision about Moscow."


    Sam Adams: Welling up watching @BBCSport review of super Saturday last year.

    Meg Munn: Reliving Super Saturday with BBC athletics #oneyearon - 3 golds in an amazing hour so lucky to have been there.

    Rachel Anne: My memory of the #Olympics was standing at the window of copper box on Super Saturday night and thinking I was there...

    Lord Coe is interviewed by Colin Murray

    "Spectators are still making their way into the stadium, but those already in their seats applaud heartily as Lord Coe steps onto the track. 'This is a massive thank you for everybody who believed in the Games and stuck with my sport, track and field,' he says. About 20 snappers have also appeared, clicking away as Lord Coe chats to Colin Murray. "It's lovely, I'm not organising it - I've already had a beer," Lord Coe jokes before being encouraged to start a Mexican wave."

  85. 1406: 

    Memories of the opening morning of athletics at London 2012 come flooding back as Jess Ennis-Hill walks out to huge cheers. That time it was round one of the women's heptathlon, the 100m hurdles. There's no heptathlon today, but she'll contest the same discipline and will attempt to upset Olympic champion Sally Pearson.

    Ennis-Hill competed for the first time this season at Loughborough on Tuesday but she admits today will be a "big test" of her ankle injury.

  86. 1400: 

    For anyone who can't see the summary points at the top of this page, here's a rundown of the key events to watch out for today:

    • 1411 BST: Women's 100m hurdles - Jess Ennis-Hill, Sally Pearson, Kellie Wells and Tiffany Porter among the runners
    • 1444: Women's 100m - Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Carmelita Jeter go head to head
    • 1505: Men's 400m hurdles - Rhys Williams goes up against Javier Culson and Felix Sanchez
    • 1550: Women's long jump - Ennis-Hill jumps for glory
    • 1555: Men's 400m - Christine Ohuruogu bids for the win
    • 1632: Men's 3000m - Time for a Mobot?
    • 1650: Men's 4x100m relay - Usain Bolt struts his stuff

    GB sprinter James Dasaolu: So sorry I had to pull out yesterday it is nothing serious just had a slight tightness in my hip. I will be fully fit and ready to roll come Moscow.

  88. 1350: 

    For those who didn't follow Friday's action, a reminder that you missed Usain Bolt entering the arena on a rocket and proceeding to win the 100m - on his feet, I might add. He celebrated by throwing his spikes into the crowd... ouch! We were denied Bolt's eagerly anticipated showdown with James Dasaolu after the British sensation withdrew at the last minute because of a hip injury. Talking about popping a balloon.

    There was a personal best for Perri Shakes-Drayton as the London warmed up for the World Championships with second in the 400m hudles, while Britain's women won the 4x100m relay and Ukraine's Bohdan Bondarenko just missed out on the high jump world record.

  89. 1340: 
    TUNE IN!

    BBC One is up and running with live coverage from inside the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - we'll be on air until 1715. BBC Radio 5 live will be popping in and out all day, as well. You can also, of course, follow everything right here on the BBC Sport website.

    Fans queue to get inside the Olympic Stadium
    Aimee Lewis, BBC Sport at the Olympic Stadium

    "It's a Saturday, the day of the week when the unthinkable usually happens at the Olympic Stadium. Nothing will top Super Saturday, when Britain clinched three holds in a magnificent 45 minutes, but Elton John's 'Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting' is blaring out of the sound system which suggests there will, if nothing else, be a party atmosphere here today. A hefty number of fans are gradually making their way to their seats on what is a beautiful afternoon in the capital. Some were even queuing at the gates at 1030 this morning, such is their thirst to see Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill."

  91. 1334: 

    OK, OK, I realise NOTHING in the history of humankind will ever come close to matching Super Saturday - but 27 July 2013 could be special in its own right. Sadly one member of the three musketeers (Rutherford) is out injured, but Ennis (now known as Ennis-Hill) and Farah return to the scene of their crowning glories. As does a man who needs no introduction... Usain Bolt. There are many more big-name athletes whose exertions we will enjoy over the next few hours.

    Welcome to day two of the Anniversary Games - a belter awaits us.

  92. 1330: 

    It's the evening of Saturday 4 August 2012 and 80,000 spectators pour into London's Olympic Stadium, with millions more setting up camp in front of TV screens the world over. Excitement abounds for a dazzling night of athletics, but from a British perspective it is more about hope than expectation. Nobody in their wildest dreams would have imagined what was about to follow. I refer you to our live text commentary from that astonishing, unprecedented, unforgettable night in Stratford...

    2102: GOLD MEDAL - Jessica Ennis GB (heptathlon)

    2124: GOLD MEDAL - Greg Rutherford, GB (Men's long jump)

    2146: GOLD MEDAL - Mo Farah, GB (Men's 10,000m)

    Who fancies a repeat today?
