Double Olympic champion Mo Farah created history once again in Moscow as he became the first British man to win a 10,000m world title. Farah was born in Somaliland, a peaceful and developed country north of war-torn Somalia and east of Ethiopia. A year on from winning the 10,000m and 5,000m in London, the 30-year-old moved a step closer to repeating his Olympic feat in the Russian capital.
The Londoner saw off 2011 champion Ibrahim Jeilan in a thrilling sprint finish, crossing the line in 27 minutes and 21.71 seconds.
