Sir Mo Farah’s farewell continued when he finished eighth in the Great Manchester Run 10K on Sunday, the penultimate race of his career.

Farah was previously in action at the London Marathon last month, finishing ninth.

Farah’s glittering career has seen him claim double Olympic gold in the 5,000m and 10,000m at both London 2012 and Rio 2016, as well as six world titles.
