It starts today! With the women's 100m heats.

That for me I hope could be a thrilling race with Dina Asher-Smith, the last three Olympic gold medalists Jamaican duo Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Elaine Thompson-Herah.

Semifinal 1 - Elaine Thompson-Herah in 10.76 (0.0)

Asher-Smith faces an anxious wait now only third with 11.15.

This is the part of the Olympics I've looked forward to most. It looks like the stadium is not completely empty like I thought it would be.

It's really sad for Dina Asher Smith that she's pulling out of the 200m because of a hamstring injury after failing to qualify for the 100m final. She'll have a good chance in the Paris Olympics which are only 3 years away.

Good interview from Dina there with Jeanette Kwakye, she can hold her head high.

A real shame for Asher-Smith but perfectly understandable given the hamstring injury none of us knew existed until this afternoon. A Jamaican 1-2-3 was quite fun to watch though (even if the 1 and 2 don't actually seem to like each other whoops)

Yes Fraser-Pryce and Thompson-Herah definity don't like each other. They're running in the 4x100m relay together, I think it is to do with Thompson-Herah being coached by Fraser-Pryce's former coach. 10.60 the second fastest in history, 6 under 11 seconds.
