- Ellis Cross wins by four seconds at Vitality London 10,000
- Eilish McColgan narrowly misses British record in women’s race
Sir Mo Farah has admitted his career as an elite track athlete is almost certainly over after he endured a shock defeat by a club runner who had to pay £37 entry fee to compete at the Vitality London 10,000 on Monday.
During a career which has included four Olympic gold medals and six world titles, Farah has been renowned for his blistering sprint finish. But he had nothing in the tank when the 25-year-old competitor Ellis Cross, who was not part of the elite field and wore a bib with No 219 on it rather than his name, kicked for home in the shadow of Buckingham Palace.
