Farah denied final gold by Ethiopian Edris

Farah denied final gold by Ethiopian Edris

Just as five years ago when he completed the first of his two Olympic distance doubles on the second Saturday of the programme to deafening acclaim in the same stadium, a 55,000 crowd roared on the home hero.

The British record holder equalled her season's best with a 1.95 metre effort but couldn't get over 1.97m, which would have been just a centimetre under her personal best from last year's Rio Olympics.

Farah normally takes charge on the final lap but this time, following a tactical affair, he found himself playing catch-up over the final 400m as Edris and his fellow Ethopian Yomif Kejelcha led the way. Perhaps this was a step too far into greatness, even for an athlete like Farah.

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.

"To be honest with you it takes so much out of me".

Paul Chelimo of the United States set the early pace with Farah slotting in behind. They (the Ethiopians) run as a team.

"I have a few more races on the track and then I will take a short break and then this chapter of my life is closed". That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day.

"I gave 110 per cent", he said in the immediate aftermath.

Farah - who immediately went to his family as he has made a habit of doing - said he had had an extraordinary ride in the past six years.

Mo Farah of Great Britain reacts after finishing second in the Men's 5000 Metres final.

He won the 5,000m a week later and since then has done the double at the worlds in Moscow, Beijing as well as the Olympics in 2012 and Rio past year bit not London. He had also won both distance events in Moscow in 2013.

Farah will retire from track athletics this month to focus on marathon running.
