Sir Mo Farah has missed out on his dream double after finishing second in the 5,000 metres at the World Athletics Championships.

The British runner, 34, added a silver to the gold he won in the 10,000 metres in London last week.

The four-time Olympic champion was beaten in the shorter distance by Ethiopia’s Muktar Edris in a thrilling final.

Sir Mo had fought desperately to claw back the deficit in the finishing straight but Edris held on to win in 13 minutes and 32.79 seconds.

His British rival finished in 13:33.22.

Sir Mo was aiming to retain both world titles which he had won in Beijing in 2015.

The 5,000 metres was Sir Mo’s last track event at a championships before he concentrates on marathon racing.
