Asli Cakir Alptekin tonight won gold in the women's 1500m at the Olympic Stadium.
The Turkish athlete won a slow race in 4:10.23, finishing ahead of compatriot Gamze Bulut, with Bahrain's Maryam Yusuf Jamal third.

There was more agony for the USA's Morgan Uceny as she fell for the second major final in succession, having also hit the track at last year's World Championships in Daegu when she was one of the favourites.
