Another win for Olympic hero
Double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah marked his return to action with victory in the two-mile event at the Birmingham Grand Prix.
The 29-year-old won with plenty to spare, leaving the field in his wake with 200 metres to go. He clocked eight minutes 27.24 seconds. Farah fell short of Steve Ovett's 34-year-old European outdoor record but had plenty to cheer at the end of another memorable week, in which he celebrated the birth of twin girls. Farah admitted he had been running on empty this weekend and was just pleased to get through the event. "I got great support from the crowd so my main aim was just to come out here, win the race and not even think about any time," he said. "I've felt a bit tired to be honest. It's been hard. The Olympics was what I trained so hard for with all the miles week in, week out." Farah's last race of the year will be the Great North Run half-marathon on September 16. "I've just got one more race and then that will be it for me. Then I'm looking forward to taking my break and spending a bit of time with the two little ones," Farah added.
