  1. Goodnight

    OK, so that's all from me tonight.

    I hope you enjoyed the action as much as I did - especially that brilliant T34 100m final won by Hannah Cockroft with Kare Adenegan second.

    There will be another live text and more on 5 live on Saturday evening.

    The 5 live team will be led byJonathan Overend at the London Stadium, alongside commentatorEd Harry and summarisers Ali Curbishley and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson. JJ Chalmers will be grabbing interviews in the mixed zone.

    And don't forget Chris Osborne, who will be bringing you the best colour and atmosphere from London Stadium.

    People to watch? Well, how about Richard Whitehead in the T42 200m and Tatyana McFadden in the T54 200m?

    Women club F51 final

    Poor old Jo Butterfield, she was in third for so long with a best throw of 22.54m but American Rachael Morrison snatched third with a throw of 22.92m right at the very end.

    Fellow Brit Kylie Grimes finished fifth with 18.62m as her best effort.

    You can see Butterfield in action in the discuss on Saturday.

  3. Post update

    Agony for Jo Butterfield, who right at the very, very end has just missed out on a medal in the club F51 final.


  5. Post update

    So, we are still waiting to find out if Jo Butterfield will claim bronze.

    Zoia Ovsll of Ukraine is going to win gold and Cassie Mitchell second.

    Whether Butterfield does take bronze depends on Rachael Morrison - the American is the only person left to throw and currently sits fourth.

  6. Post update

    A couple of women's 200m T47 heats brings the curtain on the action on the track tonight, three qualifying from each. South Africa's Anrune Liebenberg won the first, American Deja Young the second.

  7. A medal for Butterfield?

    The big threat for Jo Butterfield in the club F51 final comes from American Rachael Morrison, who is currently fourth and has three throws left.

    Morrison has a best of 21.64m so far - Butterfield recorded a best of 22.33m.

  8. Post update

    Day one of the World Para-athletics Championships is almost over - but we are still waiting to find out whether Jo Butterfield holds on to take bronze in the club F51 final.

    Women F32 club final

    Great news for Gemma Prescott - who wins GB's third medal of the tournament with bronze in the F32 club final for seated athletes with cerebral palsy.

    BBC Sport at London Stadium

    Finland's Leo-Pekka Tähti may have had a technical issue in the last few metres of that victory, but in classic Finnish fashion he barely looked bothered - ice cold. Kimi Raijjonen eat your heart out.

  13. Post update

    Was that a sigh of relief at the end of the Flying Finn?

  14. Gold for Tahti

    Men 100m T54 final

    Finland's heavily fancied Leo-Pekka Tahti has predictably enough won his first gold of the Championships in 13.95 secs.

    He seemed to have some problem with his chair towards the end and sat up but still finished some way clear of his rivals.

  15. Butterfield latest

    It will be bronze at best for Jo Butterfield in the club F51 final after she finished with a best throw of 22.33m.

    Gemma Prescott is also hanging on to third in the F32 club final.

    Great news for Morocco's Sanaa Benhama has at the age of 35 just run a personal best time of 4:40.40 to win the 1,500m T13 final, edging out two Tunisian rivals.

    Ireland's Greta Streimikyte came fourth.

  17. Post update

    What about our other medal hopes tonight? Gemma Prescott is holding on to third in the F32 club final, Abbie Hunnisett is currently eighth.

    Jo Butterfield is currently third in the club F51 final - and into her final three throws.

  18. 'The easy one out of the way'

    Hannah Cockroft on Radio 5 live: "It is an alright start - I'll take that! But that is the easy one out of the way."

    What about the 800m, which is next: "The less we say about it the better. It will be a tough race, not easy, I'm not guaranteed to win that. I had to kind of hold back tears on my warm-up lap because so many people were shouting my name.

    "This will be the best World Champs we ever have had - London has really pulled it out of the bag."

    Hannah Cockroft
  19. Racing and GCSEs

    Kare Adenegan, who is 16, on Radio 5 live: "I thought 'wow' after my start, I am in contention, but I'm still young and still don't have the strength for the finish yet.

    "It feels great to be here - it has been tough juggling with my GCSEs. I wanted to come out here and prove that I can do both.

    "In Doha at the last Champs the 100m was my worst event - but this has gone well and I'm really looking forward to the 800m."

  20. Gold and silver

    Hannah Cockroft on Channel 4: "I know that Kare is stronger than me off the start and it really makes me work hard and dig in, she pushes me all the way and I know she will do so in the next two races.

    "The track is not as fast as it used to be back in 2012. I'm fast but I know I can go faster."

    Kare Adenegan: "After my start I tried to hold on to my speed and finish quickly."
