Mo Farah loses out on Gold in final major track race

13 August 2017

In a tactical race, Farah could not respond to a challenge for the first time in six years, turning his farewell race on the track at a major championship into a disappointment. In the 5,000m he was untouchable before tonight - winning at the Worlds in 2011, 2013, 2015 and of course at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.

"I gave it my all, 110 percent", said Farah.

Edris finished in 13mins 32.79secs, with the United States' Paul Chelimo third.

"For me, it's not Mo Farah - and that's not to do a disservice to Mo, who is one of the greats of all time".

At 10,000 metres, in which Farah has also won a record five global golds, he is also still only the 16th-fastest (26:46.57), almost half a minute down on Bekele's world record of 26:17.53.

"It's very special.it's been a long journey, but it's been incredible", Farah told BBC Sport. "I did the Mobot out of respect as well for him". It didn't quite hit home until after I crossed the line and had a couple of moments to myself when I realised - this is it.

"Tactically, I was trying to cover every move and they [Edris and Ethiopian team-mate Yomif Kejelcha] had a gameplan".

A disconsolate Farah dropped to the track as Edris mimicked his famous celebration, before finally picking himself up to complete a farewell lap.
