Double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah will return to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park today to compete in the second day of the Anniversary Games.

The Team GB star will compete this afternoon in the men's 3,000 metres, an event he won earlier this year at the British Grand Prix in Birmingham.

He was one of Team GB's most successful athletes at last year's games, winning gold medals in the 5000m and 10,000m last summer.

Perri Shakes-Drayton set a personal best time of 53.67 seconds in the women's 400m hurdles. She came second behind the Czech athlete Zuzana Hejnova.
