Mo Farah does the double
Mo Farah has won the 5,000m to claim his second gold medal of the London Olympics.
The last lap of the race saw him break away from the pack in spectacular style and none of the other athletes ever looked like a real threat. Straight after crossing the line, Farah dropped to the floor and started doing sit-ups as if he'd just walked once around the track.
This win accompanies the gold medal he won in the 10,000m earlier this week, putting him in a elite group with five other athletes who've won both the 10,000m and 5,000m finals at the same Olympics.
"It's just unbelievable. I had a lot of confidence coming into the race, I knew I just had to hold onto it," said a beaming Farah. "It all worked out well. It's amazing, two gold medals, who would have thought that? I just want to thank everyone that's supported me."
absolutely fanstastic to watch you run MO !!!!! very proud to be British. well done.
Forget about the Bolt, the Mobot is the man of the games for sure.
I waited a whole week to watch what I presumed would be, and like everybody else I was not left to be disappointed.
There used to be an advert for 'Peas', it went like this, "Sorry mate, your too late, the best pea's have gone to Farrows", but with what I've just seen, the above could be re-invented to say "Sorry chaps, about your mishaps, but the best Gold has gone to Farah".
