Sunday, 6 October - day 10

BBC coverage: 16:30-20:00 BBC One, 16:30-20:30 uninterrupted Connected TV and online

Number of golds: Seven to be won - in the men's 1500m, men's javelin, women's 100m hurdles, women's long jump, men's 10,000m and men's and women's 4x400m relay

17:15 - women's long jump: Germany's Malaika Mihambo recorded the biggest jump in qualifying but American Brittney Reese, who has won four of the past five World Championships, failed to make the final. Britain's Shara Proctor and Abigail Irozuru will be among the 12 battling for the medals.

17:40 - men's 1500m: Norwegian Jakob Ingebrigtsen hopes to become the first European world champion in this event since Steve Cram in 1983, but Kenya are seeking a fifth successive world title and 2017 silver medallist Timothy Cheruiyot has won 11 of his 12 Diamond League races over the past two seasons. Britain's Neil Gourley, Josh Kerr and Jake Wightman will all race in the final - the first time in World Championship history three British men have accomplished that feat.

17:55 - men's javelin: There was a big shock in qualification when neither Olympic champion Thomas Rohler nor 2018 Diamond League winner Andreas Hoffman progressed to the final. Fellow German Johannes Vetter qualified with the biggest throw of the day - a monster 89.35m - while current world leader Magnus Kirt from Estonia will also be involved.

18:00 - men's 10,000m: With no Mo Farah, it will be a fight between Uganda, Ethiopia and Kenya for the medals.

18:50 - women's 100m hurdles: With Sally Pearson out of the picture (the Australian reigning champion announced her retirement in August), this looks set to be a showdown between the world record holder, USA's Kendra Harrison, and 2019's world number one, Jamaica's Danielle Williams. They qualified for the semi-finals with the second and third quickest times, behind Nigeria's Tobi Amusan.

19:15 - women's 4 x 400m relay: Keep an eye out for American Allyson Felix, returning from the birth of her first child last November. She could win a record-extending 18th World Championships medal (and a 13th gold) while the GB quartet will hope to extend their impressive run in this event. Britain have won a medal in the past seven World Championships and qualified for this year's final in the third quickest time behind the USA and Jamaica and a new season's best.

19:30 - men's 4 x 400m relay: The British team have won a bronze medal at the past three World Championships, but initially did not qualify for the 2019 final after only finishing fifth in their heat. But after Botswana were disqualified, Britain were awarded the last lucky loser's spot.
