Great Britain’s Mo Farah has completed a historic ‘triple-double’ by winning 5,000m gold at the World Championships.
Farah, who won the 5,000m and 10,000m double at the 2012 Olympics and 2013 World Championships, has already won the 10,000m title in Beijing.
The race started at a slow pace until Caleb Ndiku took the lead with two laps to go.
