Farah denied winning send-off at London 2017 as Edris claims 5000m gold

A fifth successive distance double proved just beyond Mo Farah as he was beaten to 5000 metres gold by Muktar Edris in his final major championship race at London Stadium on Saturday.

The Briton had won over 5000m and 10,000m at the past two IAAF World Championships and Olympic Games, but Ethiopia's Edris denied him gold with a time of 13 minutes and 32.79 seconds.

Farah, who won the 10,000m once again last weekend, dug in to finish 0.43secs behind new world champion Edris, while Paul Chelimo of the United States claimed bronze.
