London 2017: It's been incredible says Farah

Muktar Edris of Ethiopia got the better of Mo Farah

That wasn't the only surprise.

"After the 10km he was maybe exhausted so he did not have enough for the last kick - I was stronger". His body can no longer hold up.

This will be the World Championships that will be remembered for swiping aside fairy-tale endings, throwing any sporting romanticism into the abyss and laughing at those who came in hope of one glorious farewell to athletes who have transcended track and field. "I will train hard and I will break the national record", Lakshmanan said after the race.

"It's a cramp in his left hamstring, but a lot of the pain is from disappointment from losing the race", Jamaican team doctor Kevin Jones said.

The 4 X 100m relay takes place tonight at 9.50pm - when the big man Usain Bolt says goodbye to his spikes.

The U.S. won the women's relay, giving Allyson Felix her record-breaking 15th career world medal to pass Bolt.

Mo Farah had to settle for silver medal in the final race of his track career. The Ethiopians teamed up on Farah and ended his spell of dominance before he could walk away. His streak of Olympic and world titles ends at 10.

Farah, who had not lost a final in 2,176 days, having also won the 10,000m and 5,000m at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships, crossed the line in 13 minutes 33.22 seconds. American Paul Chelimo earned bronze after grabbing silver behind Farah in Rio.

Farah was hurting after the 10,000, where he was kicked around the track and then came the 5,000 heats in dismal conditions, under an angry London sky. The 34-year-old is moving to road racing and marathons after this season.

In the decathlon, France's Kevin Mayer racked up 8,768 points to win gold.

Silver medallist Britain's Mohamed Farah poses on the podium during the victory ceremony for the men's 5000m athletics event at the 2017 IAAF World Championships at the London Stadium in London on August 12, 2017. Five years ago who would have thought that the twins in mummy's tummy would be on the track? "I'm taking over next year - 2019, I am after that gold".

She, Aaliyah Brown, Morolake Akinosun and individual 100m champion Tori Bowie produced a superb display to win in a world leading time of 41.82. He is sure to receive offers from around the world to take part in other events off the track.
