Mo Farah claims gold in Euro men's 10,000 metres

Olympic champion Mo Farah has won another gold medal for Great Britain, battling through driving rain to claim first place in the men's 10,000 metres at the European Championships.

The star runner went into the lead with 600m left on the track, making a final push to surge clear in the final 60m.

And it was a double celebration for the British team as Farah was followed by Andy Vernon to claim the silver, having managed to overtake Turkey's Ali Kaya in the last few metres.

The win helped bring a smile back to Farah's face in what has been a tough competitive year for the athlete.

He collapsed part-way through the New York half-marathon, finished a disappointing eighth in the London Marathon, and was unable to compete in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow due to a tooth infection.


Mo Farah to compete in Glasgow Commonwealth Games

Double Olympic gold medal winner Mo Farah has announced he will compete in this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The 31-year-old athlete told his one million followers:


Hi guys! I will be running in the Commonwealth Games this year..!! See you in Glasgow..!! Shabba....!!

The 5,000 metres and 10,000m London 2012 Olympic Champion hasn't yet decided what events he will compete in.


Haven't decided which events to compete in Commonwealth Games yet... 1500m/5000m/10,000m ?? Will let you know as soon as I decide...!!

But it is unlikely he will attempt the gruelling task of running the marathon after his coach Alberto Salazar advised him to forget about the discipline until after the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Farah's participation in the Games is likely to increase demand for tickets this summer and organisers have already said that demand is "unprecedented".
