What a STAT! 

With Team USA winning the 4x400m relay, Allyson Felix claims her third medal at these Championships and a second gold. The 31-year-old from Los Angeles holds a total of 16 world medals and has drawn level on 11 golds with Usain Bolt. 

Preview:  Caster Semenya will attempt to reclaim her 800 metres title on the final day of action of the IAAF World Athletics Championships in London on Sunday.

The South African, who was awarded gold retrospectively in the event in 2011, already has one medal to her name this week, after winning bronze in the 1,500 metres on Monday.

However, it's the two-lap race that is her strongest, the event in which she won Olympic gold in Rio.

Semenya's race is among the highlights of the final session at the London Stadium.

In the women's 5,000 metres, Ethiopia's Almaz Ayana who won the 10,000 metres earlier this week is the firm favourite.

The other gold medal event is the men's 1,500 metres, where Kenya's Asbel Kiprop looks for his fourth world title and the men's high jump.

Having taken back the women's 4x100 metres relay title from Jamaica the day before, the United States will aim to repeat that feat on Sunday in the 4x400 metres relay.

The final event will be the men's edition of the race as hosts Britain go for one last gold.

The day's action begins across the city at The Mall, where the men and women's 50 kilometres race walk gets under way with the 20 kilometres versions following afterwards.

From the Indian perspective, Khushbir kaur takes part in the women's 20 km walk while three other athletes Irfan Kolothum Thodi, Devender Singh and Ganapathi Krishnan take part in the men's 20 km walk.
