    I mean I'm happy we won it's just seems too much that they skew the stats like that.

    3rd fastest nation ever, 14th fastest time ever. Still incredible, especially given all the others were teams filled with la crème de la crème

    You wait all week for a medal and then three come along on the same night!

    GB up from 13th to 4th in the medal table, it would have been third if Mo could have made it a second gold.

    It was probably a race too far for him and a season too far for Bolt but at least we've had the privilege of watching them at their peak.

    The silver for the women's team and the crowd reaction when the final positions flashed up on the scoreboard in the men's 4 x 100m relay, made up for all the 4th places this week.

    Final day of the championships today.

    Medal ceremony for the 4 x 100m.

    Laura Muir goes in the 5000m final.

    Chance of a medal for GB in the women's 4 x 400m final tonight.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    Roaring with laughter at them.
    Looks like they are desperate for a shit, sphincter clenched, as they try to get to the bog in time.
