London 2017: Farah finishes with 5000m silver

Mo Farah takes world 5000m silver to fall short of a farewell double

Quite simply, Farah will go down in history as Britain's best-ever athlete and one of the greatest the world has ever witnessed.

Mo Farah's aura of invincibility after six years of unrelenting success was finally cracked in his last major track race as he lost his world 5000m title to Ethiopia's Muktar Edris.

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

"I gave 110 per cent", he said in the immediate aftermath. The better man won.

Farah, who had won the 10,000m last Friday to open the championships with a bang, said he couldn't have given it more but added he had proved that it was possible to break up the Ethiopian and Kenya hegemony over the distance races.

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. "I got boxed in early on - it doesn't normally happen - and couldn't get out".

British team-mate Andrew Butchart finished eighth in 13mins 38.73secs.

But when he starts his career as a marathon runner, Farah will be able to reflect on having created an fantastic legacy with his four Olympic and six World Championship gold medals.

Meanwhile, Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Morgan Lake finished fifth and sixth respectively in the women's high jump.
