Mo Farah has secured his place as one of Britain's greatest sportsmen as he claimed an astonishing second gold medal of London 2012.
Victory for the 29-year-old in the 5,000m, seven days after he set the Olympic Stadium alight by winning the 10,000m, topped a golden Games for Britain.
A euphoric crowd of 80,000, including his heavily pregnant wife Tania and daughter Rihanna, created a deafening noise as Farah won with a sprint finish.
He kissed the track after victory and even started doing sit-ups on the track after the sprint finish.
Only five other men have ever taken the 5,000m and 10,000m titles at the same Olympic Games.
The others are Hannes Kolehmainen, one of the original flying Finns, Czech Emil Zatopek, the Soviet Vladimir Kuts, Finland's Lasse Viren - managed the double in both 1972 and 1976 - and Ethioipia's Kenenisa Bekele.
His historic win means the British team's medal tally has reached 60 - 27 gold, 15 silver and 18 bronze.
