Mo Farah wins 3,000m at Anniversary Games in London

Four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah enjoyed the perfect tune-up ahead of the World Championships with a trademark victory in the 3,000m at the Anniversary Games.

The 34-year-old was pushed hard by Spain’s Adel Mechaal, but his final-lap pace proved decisive as he came home in seven minutes 35.15 seconds.

Farah will attempt a third successive world 5,000m-10,000m double in August.

Elsewhere, Britain’s Laura Muir finished second in the women’s mile.

Muir came in behind Kenya’s Olympic silver medallist Hellen Obiri and also missed out on a new British record by six hundredths of a second at the Games, held as part of the Diamond League calendar.
