London 2017 will smash records for ticket sales to become biggest World Championships in history

Organisers of London 2017 have confirmed the event will smash records as the biggest World Championships in history.

More than 660,000 tickets have been sold for the championships, which begin on Friday evening – far exceeding the previous attendance record of 417,156 sold for the 2009 event in Berlin.

A quarter of a million people will fill the London Stadium next weekend for the opening three days of competition, which will feature Usain Bolt attempting to bow out with a successful defence of his 100 metre title, and Mo Farah bidding for a sixth world title in the 10,000m.

All three opening nights of competition will also be preceded by special ceremonies to reallocate medals originally won by drugs cheats.

Jessica Ennis-Hill will finally receive the 2011 world heptathlon gold she was denied by Russia’s Tatyana Chernova, while Christine Ohuruogu will form part of British 4x400m relay quartets to be given medals from 2009, 2011 and 2013.
