Mo Farah denied final gold by Ethiopian Edris
British athletics legend Mo Farah narrowly failed to complete a fifth successive global double on Saturday when he finished second behind Ethiopian Muktar Edris in a thrilling 5,000 metres world final.
The 34-year-old, whose winning run in the 5,000m at Olympics and world finals stretched back to 2011, fought desperately to claw back the deficit in the finishing straight but Edris held on to win in 13min 32.79sec.
Farah, a two-time double world champion and two time double Olympic champion, finished in 13:33.22.
American Paul Chelimo added world bronze to his Olympic silver timing 13.33.30.
