Sir Mo Farah retained his 10,000 metre World Championships title with victory on the track at the London Stadium.

Four-time Olympic champion Farah, competing in his final major championship before retiring, took gold in a tight race on Friday evening.

With victory, in 26.49 minutes, the long-distance runner won his 10th straight world long-distance title.

Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda took silver and Paul Tanui of Kenya got bronze.

The last time Farah missed out on a major title was when he finished second in the 10,000 at the 2011 world championships.

He is set to defend his title in the 5,000 metres later in the championships.
