Mo Farah

It has been a familiar sight. The best of the rest stressing, straining and stretching in his wake, but ultimately unable to reel in Mo Farah.

It played out again in Zurich on Thursday night as Farah took revenge on Muktar Edris – who inflicted a rare defeat in the World Championship 5,000m final earlier this month – to take the Diamond League title and $ 50,000 (£39,000) in prize money.

But we won’t see it again, at least on the track.
