No golden ending as Farah signs off with Worlds silver

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

The four-time Olympic champion was beaten in the shorter distance by Ethiopia's Muktar Edris in a thrilling final.

The 34-year-old couldn't hide his disappointment after crossing the line in the race, which took place in the same stadium in which he won two Olympic golds five years ago.

"This is my first World Championships and I have come into the race thinking to break the national record".

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.

Momentarily, it looked like Farah might not even take a medal.

Edris won in 13 minutes, 33.79 seconds, .43 seconds ahead of Farah in second. "I think I have gained a lot of experience after this race", he added. They (the Ethiopians) run as a team.

"There's more need for us to demonstrate that we have some incredible talent, but the athletes have also got to realise that they've also got a sizeable part to play in this".

Paul Chelimo of the United States set the early pace with Farah slotting in behind. That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day.

This race was not as bruising and Farah looked in control until the final 100metres. I would have loved to have seen Usain win but at this level no-one is going to give it you, no matter who you are.

"It was close but not close enough but when I reflect I've got to be happy with that in my first-ever high jump final", she said.

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.

And in each of the 2012 and 2016 Olympics and the 2013 and 2015 World Championships, that has meant doubling up over the two longest track championship distances.

For Farah, there will be no comeback on the track, as he now moves up the marathon looking to extend his gold medal haul.
