Mo Farah takes world 5000m silver to fall short of a farewell double
The 34-year-old Farah was momentarily demoted to fourth place but as Edris held on for a momentous victory in 13.32.79, he dug as deep as he could to pip Chelimo on the line and finish with silver in 13.33.22, before he was left on the track exhausted and heartbroken.
But when he starts his career as a marathon runner, Farah will be able to reflect on having created an wonderful legacy with his four Olympic and six World Championship gold medals. I didn't have a single bit left at the end.
Edris, the fastest man over the distance in the world this year, was second behind team-mate Yomif Kejelcha who led the charge for the line with 400m to go, but overtook him and Farah could not respond.
"For me, it's not Mo Farah - and that's not to do a disservice to Mo, who is one of the greats of all time".
The Briton heads into tonight's race as favourite to take gold having already won the 10,000m - Great Britain's only medal of the championships so far - to defend the title he won in 2013 and 2015.
He also won the 5,000m at the 2011 worlds, giving him 10 global golds in all.
"They had the game plan - one of them was going to sacrifice themselves".
DJ Fires Back At Taylor Swift During Sexual Assault Trial A jury is expected to be seated soon in Taylor Swift's civil trial involving a groping allegation against a former DJ. Mueller claims in his lawsuit that he is being falsely accused by Swift and he was sacked over her allegation.
"It's been fantastic. It's been a long journey but it's been incredible", said Farah who was embraced by his fans as he made his way around the stadium on a lap of honour, stopping to sign autographs and pose for "selfies".
Thankfully Farah has delivered, albeit not with the double-gold everyone hoped, but where would we be without him?
"I had to decide what it took to become a champion and that was to move to the other side of the world - nothing was guaranteed but I took that chance".
"Back in 2008 at the Olympics I was so disappointed [at not making the 5,000m final] and I didn't know what to do with myself, whether to carry on with the sport", said Farah.
"This London crowd is awesome - there is no place like home".
Elsewhere, Britons Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Morgan Lake finished fifth and sixth respectively in the high jump as Maria Lasitskene - the Russian competing as a neutral athlete - won gold with a leap of 2.03m.
Day nine at the World Athletics Championships in London sees the action come to a close with the final day of events.
