Mo Farah insists that he was desperate not to be beaten by Ibrahim Jeilan in the 10,000m again at the World Championships.

Mo Farah has revealed his delight at winning gold at the World Athletics Championships in the 10,000m.

The Briton held off the challenge of Ibrahim Jeilan, who beat him to the gold medal two years ago.

"I had the experience from a couple of years ago," Farah told BBC Sport.

"I saw him [Jeilan] coming at the bell and I knew he was behind me. I needed to have something left in the tank and it was nice to beat him this time.

"I was working so hard on the final lap, I didn't want to lose again. I just made sure I didn't over-stride."

The title is Farah's first 10,000m gold medal at the World Championships.
