The BBC have just tweeted that they are experiencing problems on their website!

I have checked all available streams and not one of them is currently showing athletics.

My guess was that the Beeb had hoped to get the Tyson Gay race, which is with NBC and not the IAAF.

If that's what it was, the stream would have kicked in at 20:00.

Tyson gay's 10 flat was into a headwind of -1.5. He's back, at least in a one off race.

Lawrence Okoye 5th with 63.87. His first Diamond League overseas?

I can't see Bingham getting down to 45s. Has he been or is he injured?

It's foolish to blame the beeb when all the other European providers' signals are out too. Bummed out by this blackout. The broadcasters should be thankful that this happened to a minor sports event.

I see Germaine Mason is in the high jump! Wonder what sort of shape he's in - anything around 2.25 would be quite an achievement but he's hardly jumped in recent years and when he has he's struggled to clear 2.10/2.15.

When is a "minor sport" not a "minor sport" in the BBC's eyes?

In July and August.

Watching the womens 400m was like watching the Addidas fashion show - makes it very hard to distinguish who is who!

Wow, that was what.... 20cm over the board and looked like about 8.85/8.90? Possible 8.6? jump and he pulled out of it slightly at the end!

She has never been a one off racer, having said that she could of gone off a little quicker. In the final 50m she was coming through pretty quick

Nice to see they finally realised their mistake in mixing up the Simpsons in the women's 800!

The mens 110h was an absolute disaster. The false starts, running under protest - complete joke

Osagie 1.44.61PB. How many Brits have 3 runs in a season under 1.45?

Be quite nice to see it, rather than meaningless no jumps in the men's Long Jump...yes I know, "beyond our control" and all that, but Jesse Williams is from USA.
