Find out below who the world's media are tipping for gold- the USA's Richard Browne or Great Britain's Jonnie Peacock?

Elizabath Hudson BBC Sport Online - Browne

"Purely on yesterday's performance."

Rob Maul - Browne

"He broke the world record, is clearly in great from and I feel has less pressure going into the race."

Danny Crates - Channel 4 - Peacock

"Browne has never had to run under pressure before. Peacock has and he's handled it well."

Katharine Merry - Channel 4 - Peacock

"The race winner will be decided after 30m so the start is so important. Jonnie has coped with 80,000 peopel chanting his name in the Olympic Stadium so I favour the Brit."

Rob Walker - Channel 4 - Browne

"I'd like Peacock to win, but Browne looked good yesterday.

John Rawling - Channel 4 - Peacock

"He's been there and done that."

Jan Willem Buijs - Unlimited Magazine - Peacock

"It will be a very close one. Even though Peacock lost his world record to Browne yesterday, I think he will win it in the end."

Patrick Dumesnil - Film France Corporation - Browne

"He looks stronger than Peacock."

Jeremy Nicholas - ParalympicSport.TV - Peacock

"Because Jonnie rises to the challenge and just won't be beaten. He'll be inspired by the royal birth."

Stuart Weir - Peacock

"I am British, I can't really say an American winner."

Marcus Hartmann - Snapper Extraordinaire - Browne

"Because Peacock is scared."

Luis Cordoba - Vivir sin Limites - Browne

"I think he is the better one."

Sonia McLaughlan - Channel 4 - Browne

"My head says Browne. His semi-final performance shows he is a man in form. Browne was making some bold predictions about the final afterwards and appears in better form than Peacock so far. But my heart says Jonnie."

Gareth Davies - The Telegraph - Browne

"Browne in a new world record time. Peacock is feeling the heat - it was tangible in his mood and petulance with the media post heats on Monday.

Alison Curbishley - BBC Radio 5 Live -Browne

"My heart says Peacock, but my head says Browne. He looked the complete sprinter yesterday and I think he can go faster. It will decided on who gets the best starts."

Kate Grey - BBC Radio 5 Live - Peacock

"He has to put his money where his mouth is and lead from the front like he said in his tweet."

Ed Harry - BBC Radio 5 Live - Browne

"Probably had more uniterupted training than Peacock and looked strong yesterday."
