Mo Farah, one of the greatest British athletes of all time, finished fourth in the final race of his career at the Great North Run.

The 40-year-old four-time Olympic champion slipped off the pace early in the famous 13.1-mile race from Newcastle to South Shields.

He finished three minutes 29 seconds behind Ethiopia’s Tamirat Tola, who won in 59 minutes 58 seconds.

“It’s very emotional. There was a lot going through my mind,” Farah said.

He told BBC Sport: “All I know is running and that is what made me happy for so many years.

“Running is everything to me. Running is what saved me.
