Sir Mo Farah claims silver in 5000 metres at world athletics championships

Sir Mo Farah claims silver in 5000 metres at world athletics championships”

However in the final 1,000m Farah started to struggle as the 23-year-old Edris and compatriot Yomif Kejelcha really upped the pace.

Having won gold in the 10,000m Farah was the favourite to take the 5,000m gold as well.

Farah had romped to victory in the longer event on the opening night of the championships last weekend. "I gave it all, I didn't have a single bit left at the end". It's not an excuse, but it took a lot more out of me than I realised.

In a thrilling finale, Farah looked to be completely outgunned by three rivals only to fight back and snatch second place behind Edris, who clocked 13 minutes, 32.79 seconds after a searing final lap.

"Tactically, I was trying to cover every move", said Farah, after being consoled by his wife and four children at trackside.

Quite simply, Farah will go down in history as Britain's best-ever athlete and one of the greatest the world has ever witnessed. The bronze medal went to American Paul Chelimo (13:33.30). That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day.

The gold medal went to Muktar Edris of Ethiopia, who broke the hold of Mo Farah on long-distance running, outkicking the Briton over the final 200 metres. Although Australian Patrick Tiernan hit the front on the 3,000m mark and tried to stretch the field, ...

The British runner, 34, added a silver to the gold he won in the 10,000 metres at the London Stadium last week. That he finishes with silver on the track clearly wasn't the farewell he had planned.
