The BBC has live coverage of this week’s European Indoor Championships on BBC Two, BBC iPlayer, the Red Button and the BBC Sport website.

More than 700 athletes from 47 nations will compete in Torun, Poland from 4-7 March, with Great Britain sending 46.

Dina Asher-Smith and Laura Muir have chosen to not compete to focus on the Tokyo Olympics, while Katarina Johnson-Thompson misses out because of injury.

Hurdlers Andrew Pozzi and Tiffany Porter are among the gold medal hopes.

In-form pole vaulter Holly Bradshaw hopes to improve on the silver medal she won in 2019.

Teenage 800m runner Keely Hodgkinson, who broke the world junior 800m record earlier this year, is one of Britain’s rising stars to watch.

Olympic heptathlon champion Nafi Thiam takes part in the pentathlon, while other global stars include Jakob Ingebrigtsen (1500m), Gianmarco Tamberi (high jump) and Armand Duplantis (pole vault).

The men’s 60m final is on Saturday evening and the women’s final is due to take place on Sunday.
