Mo Farah has won Olympic gold in the men’s 10,000m, retaining his title from London 2012, despite falling 11 minutes into the race.

He saw off a field including long-time rival Kenyan Geoffrey Kamworor to finish in a time of 27:05.07.

Paul Tanui of Kenya was second with Tamirat Tola of Ethiopia coming in bronze medal position. 

Farah, 33, is the first British athlete to win three athletic Olympic gold medals.

The Brit spent the first few laps of the race at the back letting the Ethiopians set the pace before moving his way up the pack.

Farah had a hairy moment when he tripped but quickly recovered and got back into his stride.
