Okay, so a small opening ceremony will make it very clear that this ​isn’t​​ the Olympics​, but it’s still got all the competition and excellence you need​, plus there are some names from those glory days taking part.

Notabl​e tonight​ is Mo Farah​ (right), who runs in the 10,000m final, the only medal given out in the first session. He’s had a few injuries lately and also dealt with some allegations about his old coach, so let’s hope we can all get together and do the Mobot one more time.

There’s also a chance to see arguably the biggest name in the sport​, Usain Bolt​, who is expected to quit after these championships but begins the defence of his 100m title tonight in the heats.

There​ are also heats of the women’s 1,500m – featuring Britain’s Laura Muir – the discus, the long jump and pole vault. Settle in.
