The women’s long jump will see Rio champion Tianna Bartoletta, whose fifth round personal best of 7.17 earned her a victory by 2cm over defending champion and fellow American Brittney Reese, facing Ivan Spanovic, who set a Serbian record of 7.08 for bronze, for the second time in three days following the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Lausanne.

Spanovic got back on top in Lausanne, winning with 6.83 as her US opponent could only manage 6.46 for fifth place.

Meanwhile, the men’s javelin brings together another athlete who earned gold with a dramatic fifth round effort, Thomas Rohler, with bronze medallist and Trinidad & Tobago’s London 2012 champion Keshorn Walcott.

Kerron Clement, the men’s 400m hurdles gold medallist from the US, faces a field which includes Turkey’s bronze medallist Yasmani Copello.

While France do not have an Olympic champion to celebrate there will be three silver medallists on parade in Robert-Michon, decathlete Kevin Mayer – who goes in the javelin – and world pole vault record holder Renaud Lavillenie.

Lavillenie, who will expect a welcome rather different to that he received in Rio’s Olympic Stadium when he was booed during his final and medals ceremony, takes on bronze medallist San Kendricks of the US and Canada’s world champion Shawnacy Barber, who will be eager to make up for his disappointment in finishing tenth in Rio.
