Mo Farah wins Gold at the World Championships

16th IAAF World Athletics Championships London 2017 - Day One

Five years to the day since winning Gold at London 2012, Sir Mo Farah is a champion again.

The 34-year-old is soon to retire from the track, but he's gone out with a bang in his last 10,000-metre race.

The atmosphere inside the London Stadium was electric, with only Usain Bolt attracting anywhere the same level of excitement on Friday night.

There's something extra special about the legendary Olympian closing out his career in the UK, and he now has a total of six golds and one silver at the World Championships, to add to his tally of four Olympic golds.

Farah tested in the middle, and with a lap to go, he appeared to stumble. The Ugandan and Kenyan contingents appeared to be doing their best to wear him out before the last lap, but he overcame that tactical ploy and responded with a brilliant finish.

The greatest

Uganda's Joshua Cheptegei came second to Farah's time of 26:49.51 after he surged into the lead with just 800m to go.

Take a look at the moment he got the gold:

This was quite possibly one of Farah's best ever performances, given how difficult it was for him to win. There's a growing argument that he doesn't get the recognition he deserves, but he has been winning praise from the world of sport and beyond:

Farah ran just three seconds off his personal best - and managed his best time since 2011 - despite being in visible pain for a large part of the race.

Perhaps we should no longer be surprised by his achievements, but he continues to amaze.
