Mo Farah misses out on fifth consecutive distance double

Muktar Edris of Ethiopia won gold with a time of 13:32.79, beating 2016 Olympic champion Mo Farah of Great Britain, who finished in 13:33.22 for the silver medal in his final race on the track. This was the first time he had failed to win gold at an worldwide championships since 2011.

No. Although this is Farah's last major track race, he'll be competing at the Birmingham Grand Prix on 20 August before bowing out in Zurich in the Diamond League final on 24 August.

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.

"Mo has many victories but now I have one".

"It's been a long journey but it's been incredible", Farah added.

"They had the game plan - one of them was going to sacrifice themselves".

When they entered, the suspect opened fire, striking one cop in the right arm; two other shots hit his bulletproof vest. Eric Phillips, spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio, said the mayor was on his way to Jamaica Hospital Center.

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

"I have a few more races on the track, then I will take a short break and then this chapter of my life is closed". That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day.

The four-time Olympic champion, having won his third world 10,000m title eight days earlier, saw his hopes of an 11th global title and golden swansong shattered by Ethiopia's Muktar Edris in a typically thrilling finish.

"I thought it might be possible coming down the home straight but my legs didn't have it. I don't know how you can't see him as our greatest ever athlete". 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.

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

However, Edris and team-mate Yomif Kejelcha seized the initiative as the bell went and Farah struggled to go with them.
