  1. Post update

    A world record, a couple of British ones as well, plus a Usain Bolt victory. 

    Does that whet the appetite for the Rio Olympics? I thought so.

    Day two of the Anniversary Games will follow on Saturday, featuring Mo Farah, Jonnie Peacock and the return of Jessica Ennis-Hill. 

    Join us back here from 12:00 BST. 

    Over and out. 

  2. Lavillenie wins the pole vault

    A vault of 5.90m was enough for France's Renaud Lavillenie to record another Diamond League victory.

    A sure bet for gold in Rio?

  3. 'Harrison was flawless'

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist on BBC Two

    World records are special. That hurdles record stood for 28 years, and could stand for another 28 years. You want that on the top of your resume and she can say that she has it.

    She was almost a hurdle ahead of a world-class field. It was flawless, I've never seen a race like that. I am so happy for her because it would have been a long difficult summer with her not going to Rio, but that world record makes up for it.

    Great preparation for Rio from these two...

    Bolt wins men's 200m

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC Red Button

    Our expectations are huge for Bolt because of what he's done in the past but we have to be realistic given his problems this season. Not many sprinters can do what he's done today.

  10. 'I wasn't that impressed'

    More from Usain Bolt on BBC Red Button: "It's my first race back from my slight injury problem. I can tell I'm not in really top shape. In training everything is OK but I need races to run myself into shape. I'll have to do that in Rio and hopefully get myself back up to speed.

    "I don't want to see it again. I wasn't that impressed."

  13. Gemili satisfied with night's work

    Men's 200m

    Adam Gemili on BBC Red Button Forum: "I am happy although I wanted to get under 20 seconds. I know what I need to work on and hopefully I can get into the final in Rio and hopefully get a medal.

    "I need to work a little bit on my speed and my technique to hold my form down the closing stages of the race."

    Usain Bolt wins 200m

    One lucky lady in the crowd is in tears as she's just caught Usain Bolt's ruby red boots which he threw into the crowd.

    She's genuinely overwhelmed and is having all sorts of trouble squeezing them into her handbag.

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator on BBC Two

    Usain Bolt is back in business. It wasn't super fast but it's a confidence-booster that will send a bit of a message to the others and he'll be happy to have a win under his belt.

  17. 'Bolt will go faster'

    Men's 200m

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist on BBC TV

    We will expect much faster from Usain Bolt in Rio. Coming through that race and winning will give him confidence to go and work on speed endurance.

  18. Bolt happy to win

    Men's 200m

    Usain Bolt on BBC Two: "I'm not fully in shape, I need more work, but I will be fine. The key thing is I came out injury free so that's the main thing.

    "It's a lot of fun, the energy is great and I love being here."

  19. Usain Bolt wins men's 200m

    He's back, guys!

    The fastest man in the world, in his first 200m race of the year, comes home in 19:84. 

    The Jamaican isn't looking overjoyed. No dancing in the crowd just yet.
