He then proceeded to power down the back straight, holding off the challenge from defending champion Kenenisa Bekele in the process.
Farah extended his lead even further in the closing stages, before crossing the line in a time of 27:30.90.
Farah is also expected to compete in the 5,000m later in the Games.
