Two track and field finals sessions mean the bulk of day nine's 33 Commonwealth Games gold medal events will come from Alexander Stadium.

A host of newly crowned world medallists will be in action.

Scotland’s Jake Wightman, who beat Olympic champion Jakob Ingebrigsten to secure his world title, will headline the men’s 1500m while Australia's Eleanor Patterson will be the woman to stop in the high jump contest. Both events will take place in the morning session.

In the evening the women’s 800m looks set to host a great showdown between two home nation stars. English world silver medallist Keely Hodgkinson will be the hot favourite in the race in Birmingham but will face a challenge from the 1500m bronze medallist from Eugene, Laura Muir of Scotland.

The night will then close with the return double double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah who will race in the women’s 200m final. The Jamaican will be looking to add to the 100m title she obtained earlier this week.

Pandelela Pamg Rinong will be back on the diving board for the women’s 10m synchro, the event in which she is a defending champion. Pamg finished 11th out of 12 in the women’s 10m platform on Thursday (4 August) and so will likely targeting an improved performance.

Team England's Jack Laugher also returns to the plunge pool aiming for his third Commonwealth Games gold in Birmingham. He will be in action in the men’s 3m springboard where he will also be mounting a defence of his title.
