Mo Farah says he will overcome a leg injury to defend his 5,000m world title after winning the “toughest race” of his life to retain his 10,000m crown.

The Briton, 34, was tripped and almost fell twice late on as he won the first medal of the 2017 World Championships in thrilling fashion at London Stadium.

“I hurt my leg and I’m going to see a doctor, a few stitches maybe,” he said.
