The 30-year-old British long-distance runner, became just the second man in history to hold both the Olympic and World Championship Gold's at 5,000m and 10,000m after Ethiopian legend Kenenisa Bekele. Mo Farah had won the same races in the 2012 summer's London Olympics.
Farah clocked 13 minutes 26.98 seconds to finish ahead of Ethopia's Hagos Gebrhiwet, who made a late charge to take silver in 13:27.26 and Kenya's Isaiah Kiplangat Koech.

A jubilant and emotional Farah said after the race: "I never thought in my career I would achieve something like this. This was very tough - it was all left to the last two laps. I had a lot of pressure but at the same time I enjoy it.
