Londoner Mo Farah finished second in the New York half-marathon, but he was led away in a wheelchair after crossing the finish line. The Olympic champion collapsed after completing the race 18 seconds behind winner Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai.

Farah fell over 5 miles into the race but recovered and quickly made up ground. The 30 year-old is preparing to make his full marathon debut in London next month.
