The World Athletics Championships will return to the BBC following the EBU’s successful bid for IAAF pan European rights.

As an EBU bid partner, the BBC will be the sole UK free to air broadcaster of the 2015 World Athletics Championships in Beijing and the 2017 Championships in London.

Barbara Slater, Director BBC Sport, said: "We’re delighted that the World Championships will be returning to the BBC. The 2017 Championships, taking place at the Olympic Stadium will be a huge moment for UK athletics, helping to deliver the Olympic legacy, and we’re thrilled to be bringing the event to our audiences."
