  1. Post update

    Another dramatic night in, and sometimes just outside, the stadium.

    We shall see you on Wednesday evening for, amongst others, the women's shot put final, the women's 400m final and the men's 400m hurdles final.

  2. Golden moment

    Men's pole vault final

    That's how you do it! Sam Kendricks is a second lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve.

    He's also a world champion.

  3. 'Our decision is to protect all athletes'

    Makwala out

    Pam Venning:

    "We had to use the assumption that if he has the same symptoms as the people who have been confirmed as having norovirus, then he is contagious and a risk to other athletes.

    "We have communicated with all of the teams. I was phoned immediately and we contacted the team leader.

    "Our decision is to protect all the athletes across the championships."

  4. Post update

    Pam Venning, the IAAF medical rep, has handled some very tough questioning very well there.

  5. Van Niekerk takes gold

    Men's 400m final

    Had it in the bag, eased down, gold in the bank.

    Wayde van Niekerk now has two world championship gold medals, an Olympic gold medal, and a Commonwealth silver.

    All at 400m. He has no 200m medals apart from in last year's African championships. That could well change on Thursday night.

  6. Post update

    Men's 400m final

    The row over Isaac Makwala's exclusion from that 400m final rumbles on and on.

  7. Post update

    Wayde van Niekerk's time tonight would have seen him finish fourth in last year's Olympic final - which he won of course in a world record time.

  8. Post update

    Men's 400m final

    Wayde van Niekerk is having a lie down on the South African flag, he's ran a lot of races this week and still has the 200m to come.

  9. Double still on

    Men's 400m final

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

    Wayde van Niekerk starts to tie up at the end and it's only 43.98 seconds but he won't be concerned about that because he came here for the double and the first half of that is now complete.

  10. 'Only Van Niekerk can jog over the line to win gold'

    Men's 400m final

    Allison Curbishley

    BBC athletics expert on Radio 5 live

    Wayde van Niekerk

    Only Wayde van Niekerk can switch off and jog over the line to win the 400m. Each round we've seen him we've not seen him hit the pedal. He's trying to conserve energy for the 200m.

  11. Gold medal - Sam Kendricks

    Men's pole vault final

    The American has gold to go with his Olympic bronze from last year.

  12. Post update

    Men's pole vault final

    Some great camaraderie between the pole vault competitors tonight, I must say. They've been chatting all night and were standing together to watch that 400m final.

    Now Renaud Lavillenie has to clear 6.01m.

    It's his last chance. He'll go from bronze to gold if he does...

    Nowhere near that time. He's out.

  13. Post update

    Wayde van Niekerk is the third man after Michael Johnson and Jeremy Wariner to win men's 400m at consecutive world championships. Good company.

  14. Post update

    Men's 400m final

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator on BBC TV

    He may have a little bit of the 200m in his legs still from yesterday but Wayde van Niekerk is just so much better than everybody else.

  15. Post update

    Men's 400m final

    Fred Curley has run fast this year but he was nowhere, struggling to seventh in 45.23 seconds.

  16. Post update

    Men's 400m final

    Wayde van Niekerk can run faster than that, maybe doubling up is hurting him a bit, but he was dominant and wins his second world title.

    Steven Gardiner has silver with Abdalelah Haroun taking bronze for Qatar.

  17. Gold medal - Wayde van Niekerk

    Men's 400m final

    Wayde van Niekerk is serene through the first 200m, then puts his foot down. It's good, it's fast, and he shuts down to win in 43.98!

    That was a class above.

  18. Away!

    Men's 400m final

    Away first time...

    Wonderful pole vault final wrapped around 800m and 400m ding-dongs. When athletics gets scheduling right, breathless excitement and drama
