No meeting record for Ekaterina Stefanidi, she's fouled out at 4.88m. Still head and shoulders above the rest of the field at the moment. All high jumpers safely over the opening height of 2.15 with Barshim passing.

Four first time clearances at 2.20m including Barshim and Britain's Tom Gayle. Robbie Grabarz also goes clear at his second attempt.

An all-Brit domestic 100m about to get underway. Two of our 4x100m gold medallists, CJ Ujah and Adam Gemili, running here. The other two will be running in the DL 200m in a bit.

Oh dear. First false start of the day...It's Adam Gemili. Nightmare. So disappointing for him after not getting a chance to race individually in the world championships. He looks gutted but he gets a big cheer from the crowd regardless.

CJ Ujah with a 10.09 for the win, James Dasaolu in second and Zharnel Hughes in third.

In the women's discus Sandra Perkovic has found a big throw of 67.22m to take the lead with two rounds left.

18 year old Brit Tom Gale is having a great competition, clean sheet and clear at 2.24. Grabarz with a foul at the same height. Barshim in the lead with a pass and two clearances.

Men's 400m on the track. Not a DL so a pretty open race. Martyn Rooney and Dwayne Cowan looking to back up their 4x400m relay bronze.

Lovely 2nd half of the race from Dwayne Cowan, he takes the win with a PB over Vernon Norwood (USA). 45.34 the time. SB for Rabah Yousif in 3rd as well.

Women's 3000m just getting underway. Runners from the steeplechase, 1500m and 5000m all in the line up today, including 5k world champion Hellen Obiri. It's a fast pace being set by the pacemaker which makes Obiri the favourite today.
