Mo Farah: 10000m title didn't come cheap

  • Mo Farah

But Mageean, who is an Olympic semi-finalist from Rio previous year and a European bronze medalist, has the form this season to at least make the semi-finals here in London.

Farah hung back in the lead pack in the early stages of the race as Kenyan two-time cross country champion Geoffrey Kamworor continued to force the pace with Tanui close behind as they tried to tire Farah.

Five of the six 400m heats were won in under 45 seconds, with South Africa's Olympic champion and world record holder Wayde van Niekerk strolling the other in 45.27.

Should he breeze through the semi-finals, Bolt will make his last individual career run in the finals later in evening.

Should he clinch victory then, Farah would become the first runner ever to secure the "triple-double" of winning both the 5,000 and 10,000m at three consecutive championships to move him past the exploits of Lasse Viren.

On the fifth anniversary of "Super Saturday" - when Farah, Jessica Ennis and Greg Rutherford all won gold medals in the space of 45 minutes inside the same stadium at the London 2012 Olympics - the atmosphere was once again electric in the capital. Kenya's Olympic silver medallist Paul Kipngetich Tanui took the bronze with 26:50.60.

"It's not what I wanted at all, I wanted to do better but I guess it's harder to come back after past year [winning the Olympic Games]", Henderson admitted.

"You had the Kenyans, you had the Ethiopians, you had the Ugandans, everybody worked as a team against me", he said immediately after retaining his title. It was about believing in my sprint finish and knowing that I have been in that position before.

Philips Catholic Church in Ozubulu where the presiding priest was conduction an early morning mass", he said . Garba Umar , the Anambra State police chief, said the violence was tied to a feud within the local community.

Farah, who will focus on road racing after he has run in two Diamond League meets - in Birmingham and Zurich - following the championships, ran to his family after he had won. I'm losing in my home town.

"I just wanted to play with the guys' heads". "I got spiked, it's fine, it happens".

"At some point in the middle of the race I didn't think I was going to lose, but I thought, "This is tough", he said. "It helped a lot having that experience". At 34, there has to be a question mark over whether he has that final-lap blistering pace.

"That was very bad, I stumbled coming out of the blocks".

BBC 5 live commentator Mike Costello: "It was astonishing the discipline he showed to win and he looked so in control it was nearly like his great hero Muhammad Ali to George Foreman in the Rumble of the Jungle when he said 'is that all you've got?'"

But very few claim a 10th gold medal at a major championships in front of a vociferous home crowd during their careers.

"I've known him personally since he was small, so it's been tough to watch", Merry, a bronze medal victor in the 400 metre race at the 2000 Olympic Games, told us.
