Mo Farah first up for British hopefuls in Moscow

Mo Farah is expecting to get Great Britain's World Championships off to a golden start in Russia today.

A year on from taking the 5,000 and 10,000 metres titles at London 2012, he is hoping to repeat the feat in Moscow.

First up is the 10,000m final at the Luzhniki this evening - his first race on the track at this distance since last year's Olympic final.

Farah took silver over that distance at the World Championships in Daegu two years ago, but UK Athletics performance director Neil Black is confident he can go one better today.

"His expectation is higher than anyone else's," he told Press Association Sport.

"He will, without doubt, expect to win. It will take an amazing performance for that not to happen so we will find out tomorrow what happens."
