London 2017: Farah fails to win 5000m gold, settles for silver

The Briton is aiming to complete an unprecedented World Championship triple-double, having retained his 10,000m title on the first day.

Clearly spent by his effort, Farah fell to the track, buried his head in his hands, hardly believing himself he'd been beaten in a championship race on the track for the first time in six years.

In the end, it was a tremendous race as Edris, Farah, Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo and Yomif Kejelcha separated themselves from the field on the back straight of an exhilarating final lap.

British track legend Mo Farah sauntered into the 5,000 metres world final on Wednesday looking good to sign off his brilliant track championship career with a fifth successive global title double.

It looked at one point as if Farah may not even make the podium but he bravely challenged up the inside in the straight and managed to overhaul two of his rivals.

"The 10,000m took a lot more out of me than I had realised". They (the Ethiopians) run as a team.

Now aged 34, old though certainly not ancient, Farah had only lost one of his 23 races at 5,000m since moving to Alberto Salazar, still under investigation by the US Anti-Doping Agency into his methods of training at the Nike Oregon Project. It doesn't quite sink in until you compete here and cross the line - I had a couple of minutes to myself - that this is it.

Coe said: "I was chatting to Usain before the medal ceremony and, slightly tongue-in-cheek, he looked at me and said, 'So what do you want me to do now, boss?'"

It is also about Kenya's bid to end 12-year gold drought in men's 5,000m, which Benjamin Kipkoech Limo last won in Helsinki, Finland, in 2005. "I feel happy that I ran with Mo Farah".

Govindan Lakshmanan ran his personal best but it was still not enough for him to qualify for the final round of the men's 5000m race in the World Athletics Championships.
