Thousands of extra tickets are being released for the IAAF World Championships London 2017.

With just over 50 days until the opening night, organisers have announced 60,000 more tickets will be on sale at 10am on Thursday.

The ticket release will will be the final opportunity for spectators to purchase the £9.58 bolt ticket for children for all sessions for the Championships, which takes place from August 4 to 13.

Niels de Vos, director, said: “We are delighted for fans of major sporting events in the UK that we’ve been granted increased capacity for the Stadium during the Summer of World Athletics.

“When we initially opened the ballot last summer 201,000 tickets were requested for the men’s 100m final night as well as a number of sessions being completely over-subscribed.

“This means we can aim to fill every seat in the Stadium for sold out sessions.”
