Great Britain's Mo Farah won his 4th Olympic gold and became only the second runner in history after Finnish legend Lasse Viren to defend 5000m and 10000m titles. 

Mo Farah returned to action this Saturday exactly one week after he defending his 10000m title, to claim his second consecutive Olympic 5000m gold. 

The 33-year-old Britton in a sprint finish defeated his opponents to claim the 5000m Olympic gold with a time of 13.03.30. 

"It's every athlete's dream but I can't believe it,” said Farah.

USA's Kenyan Born Paul Chelimo took silver just 0.6 seconds behind Farah, while Ethiopia's Hagos Gebrhiwet took bronze in 13:04.35.
