Symbols of every event feature on the design, while the London skyline is included with Tower Bridge, the London Eye, the Shard and Big Ben.

The reverse features London Stadium, the championships' venue.

Medals at July's World Para Athletics Championships, taking place from 14-23 July, will be similar, but feature distinctive disability sport equipment such as a prosthetic running leg and throwing chair.

Rather than engraving, the reverse will be inscribed with braille.

For the first time at the World Championships, 'coaches medals' will also be handed out to recognise those who prepare athletes.
