In his final track race before turning his attention to road racing, Mo Farah won a thrilling 5,000m final at the Diamond League in Zurich.
The four-time Olympic Champion brought the curtain down on his illustrious track career with one final win over Muktar Edris, the man who beat him in London to a fourth consecutive 5000m world gold.
Coming into the final 100m Farah’s rivals were right on his heels, but with only a few metres of track left before swapping it for the road, the ten-time global gold medallist held on to clinch victory by four hundredths of a second, in 13:06.05, ahead of Ethiopia’s Muktar Edris.
