ARD and ZDF are to screen the World Championships in Athletics 2013 live on their main channels.

The German public broadcasters' joint sports rights agency SportA acquired the rights from Swedish agency IEC for an undisclosed amount.

"Athletics are a core Olympic sports discipline. I'm very happy that we will be able to show the World Championships in Athletics as part of our public broadcasting offering," said ARD's sports director Ulrich Wilhelm.

The event will take place in Moscow from 10 to 18 August.
