David Weir wins gold in the T54 5000m.

Great Britain's David Weir has won gold in the T54 5000m after timing his race to perfection.

Weir kept himself towards the front of the pack in what was a slow race, before taking the lead around the final corner and racing to the line.

His time of 11:07.65 was not his best, but he judged the race and moved at the right time.

Australia's Kurt Fearnley took silver with his time of 11:07.90 and France's Julien Casoli claimed bronze with a time of 11:08.07.
