Gold for Mo Farah in World Championships 10,000 metres



Sir Mo Farah has taken gold in the 10,000 metres at the World Athletics Championships, delighting fans in London and bringing back memories of the 2012 Olympics.
 
The 34-year-old, who is due to retire from the track later this month, won in 26 minutes, 49.51 seconds - the fastest time in the world this year.


Sir Mo held off determined opposition from a group of African runners who forced the pace from the start.


After staying with them and overcoming two stumbles on the final lap, he delivered his trademark final surge.


Farah, the first athlete to win 10 consecutive global track events, was accompanied by his family on a lap of honour.


"It was amazing. I had to get my head around it and I got a bit emotional at the start. I had to get in the zone," he told BBC Sport.

"It wasn't an easy race. I work on everything and it's been a long journey.


"What a way to end my career in London. It's special."
