Mo Farah finishes second in dramatic 5000 meters final

Mo Farah finishes second in dramatic 5000 meters final

In the women's 100 metres hurdles, it will be a two-horse race with former 100 metres hurdles champion Sally Pearson of Australia going up against world record holder Kendra Harrison of the USA for the title.

Muktar Edris of Ethiopia, left, wins the 5,000m ahead of Mo Farah, right, Paul Chelimo of the U.S. and Yomif Kejelcha of Ethiopia.

Farah still doubled Great Britain's meda tally having already won the 10,000m last week with the 34-year-old the only GB athlete to have won any honour at the home championships.

Mo Farah last night signed off on his last major competition at the World Athletics Championships in London with a silver rather than the gold he coveted.

But he was defeated after failing to mount a recovery in the last 200m in a frantic sprint finish.

Sir Mo had fought desperately to claw back the deficit in the finishing straight but Edris held on to win in 13 minutes and 32.79 seconds.

However, around 15 minutes later, the same jogger returned, passing her again on the bridge and running in the other direction. The woman was only saved by the quick-thinking action of a #Bus Driver , whose vehicle could easily have struck her.

An emotional Farah collapsed on the track after the race and appeared nearly inconsolable as he held his arms over his face.

He said: "My family is everything to me".

"I think I'm a very lucky person in life".

"It's wonderful to serve my country and win medals for them".

Farah will now move on to concentrate on marathon running. Andrew Butchart, the other Briton appearing in the final, finished eighth with a time of 13:38.73.
