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

Mo Farah

Mo Farah missed out on a fifth major championships distance double in a row as he finished second in the 5,000m at the World Athletics Championships.

Idris' winning time in the men's 5000m race was 13:13.79.

In the end, it was a tremendous race as Edris, Farah, Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo and Yomif Kejelcha separated themselves from the field on the back straight of an exhilarating final lap.

Farah, 34, is stepping up to the marathon and had hoped to add to the doubles he won at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, and the 2013 and 2015 world championships.

Edris won in 13 minutes, 33.79 seconds, .43 seconds ahead of Farah in second. I was stronger. Mo has many victories but now I have one. "I gave it all, I didn't have a single bit left at the end". "It's not an excuse, but it took a lot more out of me than I realised".

At the centre of the claims are thousands of emails between wealthy business family, the Guptas and members of the ANC. We are here to remove Duduzane because Duduzane's father is the most corrupt individual in this country".

Farah embraced his family and then took a lap of honour to soak up the adulation of his home crowd, but as with his great friend and fellow legend Usain Bolt, he was denied the win he so desperately wanted in his last individual outing. "I don't know how you can't see him as our greatest ever athlete".

"I was trying to cover every move but they had a game plan - one of them was going to sacrifice himself and that's what they did and the better man won". That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day.

"It's been awesome. It's been a long journey but it's been incredible", said Farah who was embraced by his fans as he made his way around the stadium on a lap of honour, stopping to sign autographs and pose for "selfies".

"It doesn't quite hit you until you compete here until after crossing the line and having a few minutes to myself, you realise this is it".

"I got boxed in early on (in the final charge) - it doesn't normally happen - and couldn't get out".
