"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.
