He may have missed out on the gold in the 5,000m at the World Championships, but Mo Farah has taken the Mobot to new heights, striking his iconic pose on top of the London Eye.

Farah, who was racing his final championship race on the track during the men's 5,000m final on Saturday, settled for second behind the Ethiopian in 13:33.22, just back of Edris' 13:32.79.

After losing out to Ethiopia's Muktar Edris in a gruelling 5,000m final at the London Stadium Farah held a press conference on Sunday morning where he defended himself against the media and accused them of trying to "destroy" his reputation. I didn't have a single thing left to give at the end.

"That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day".

"I've achieved what I have achieved - you're trying to destroy it".

"That's why I did the Mobot".

"I gave it everything", said Farah, who is moving up to the marathon.

"It is what it is, I just meant that I was going to take Mo down", said Chelimo.

Kejelcha and Edris then kicked on to leave the fast-finishing Farah with too much work to do, the home favourite's battling efforts in the home straight only enough for silver. "If I have crossed the line, and Mo Farah has done something wrong, then prove it".

It's been wonderful. It's been a long journey but it's been incredible.

The pace lagged until five laps to go as Australia's Patrick Tiernan, a past NCAA Division One Cross-Country champion, broke from the field and pushed the pace.

"I am the next champion".

"I got boxed in early on (in the final charge) - it doesn't normally happen - and couldn't get out".

"I remember in 2008, being so disappointed and not sure whether to carry on with the sport or not".

The Briton has worked with the American since 2011, winning four Olympic gold medals and six world titles.

Another is Allyson Felix, who secured a 10th outdoor World Championship gold medal today after running a blistering second leg in the women's sprint relay.

Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita secured the first home medal of the Championships other than the two won by Sir Mo with silver in 42.12.
