History's one of the greatest distance runners of all time, Mo Farah, won the men's 10000m at the 2017 World Championships in London on Friday night.

In front of 80,000 spectators, the 33-year-old Farah, who five years ago in the same stadium celebrated his first Olympic gold, produced a fantastic race to win his 10th global title with a new World leading time of 26:49.51.

"It makes me proud to be British. It's been a long journey, it's been incredible," said Farah who celebrated his victory lap with kids and family.

"It's been hard but I'm just mentally strong I guess." he added.

Uganda's Joshua Cheptegei, who took silver, clocked a massive personal best time of  26:49.51. Cheptegei, who finshed 6th last year in Rio will turn only 21 next month. 

Paul Tanui of Kenya won the bronze medal with a time of  26:50.60.
