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.
