'Once in a lifetime'

.
BBC Sport

More from Mo Farah to BBC Sport: "That was a special moment for me [having family on the track after the race]. I miss spending time with them. It was once in a lifetime to have them on the track with me at the end.

"Anything is possible in life if you train hard. To all the kids out there, if you want to be like me it is possible if you work hard.

"Thank you to all my Arsenal fans and Wenger, the big boss, was here I hear."

'I have to get this together'

More from Usain Bolt to BBC Sport: "I think these are the worse blocks I have ever experienced. It was just not a smooth start. I have to get this together. I have to get the start together because I can't keep doing this."

'Uneasy and rusty'

#bbcathletics

Craig Beavers: Bolt looked a bit uneasy and rusty. Hopefully just blowing out the cobwebs. Be a real shame if Gatlin beats him on his swansong.

Conan McDonnell: Did no-one else see the block wobble as Usain Bolt started his heat? No wonder he was annoyed.

Gillian Hudson: Hope Bolt gets his mojo back.

Farah wins gold

Men's 10,000m final

Mo Farah has just claimed on BBC Two that Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger was in London Stadium to see his victory tonight.

His coach Alberto Salazar was not believed to have been at the venue.

The Cuban-born American has reportedly stayed back in the United States after the leak of a critical interim report from the anti-doping investigation that is looking into Project Oregon.

Salazar has always denied any wrong-doing.

'Amazing, special'

Mo Farah to BBC Sport: "It was amazing. I had to get my head around it and I got a bit emotional at the start. I had to get in the zone.

"It wasn't an easy race. I work on everything and it's been a long journey.

"What a way to end my career in London. It's special.

Farah's place in athletics folklore

Men's 10,000m final

Mo Farah may feel be a modern British hero, but he has long since become a great to go down in global history.

#MoFarah has now won the last 10 finals in 5000m/10,000m at the Olympic Games and world championships combined. #London2017 #10000m

@SimonGleave @GracenoteGold Kenenisa Bekele follows with 8 global titles in total in these distances, but not in succession...

'Epic'

Denise Lewis

Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV

Mo can afford to smile but we were all on the edge of our seats during the race. We should never take for granted how difficult it is to win. We are so used to seeing him do it. What an epic night.

'What guts'

#bbcathletics

Jonny Whiteoak: Gooooo Mo! What class, what guts, what a winner!

Barry Jones: They should call it Mo Farah London Stadium.

Kathryn: Mo Farah you deserve every success after that nail biting race. Smashed it.

Gold, gold, gold

Steve Cram

BBC athletics commentator on BBC TV

Gold, gold, gold all the way. It's Mo's 10th global gold medal. Incredible. It's easy for us to keep adding them on. If he had only ever won this race tonight it would have been a phenomenal achievement, but it's another to add to his incredible achievements.

A true British sporting hero.

Medal ceremony

Men's 10,000m final

Time for the hard-earned neckwear to be dished out.

Paul Tenui of Kenya steps up onto the bottom step, looking frankly a little out of it.

Twenty-year-old silver medalist Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda is all grins.

And Mo Farah decked out in a dazzling white tracksuit, hops onto the top step and pulls a Mobot before rearranging his features to 'dutiful' for the national anthem.

'Impossible to race against'

#bbcathletics

Dr Malcolm Harvey: Three seconds outside your PB in your final 10k? Suggests it probably shouldn't be your final 10k Sir Mo. What a run.

Stratford upon Alan: Mo Farah is impossible to race against, brushing off barges, sprints when others speed-up, gets up when he falls.

Dave Cripps: Is Sir Mo Farah allowed to be knighted twice?

London 2012 redux

Men's 10,000m final

The slow-motion replays are pretty hard to distinguish from London 2012.

Mo Farah cantering, eyes wide as the opposition recedes in the rear-view mirror, and the whole of the stadium. bobs and bounces in a sea of red, white and blue.

No-one is leaving

Nobody is leaving the stadium. They are staying to hear our national anthem and see our first gold medal.

Farah wins gold - Twitter reaction

Tried their best to ruffle his feathers there those pesky Kenyans. @Mo_Farah just smoked them...👏🏻👏🏻

Take a bow @Mo_Farah 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

To clarify. Mo Farah runs faster over 10k then I can over 200m. Staggering.

'Best of the best'

It was the best of all of Mo's victories. Yes, 2012 kicked it all off but there they really took it to him and made it a tough race and he handled it.

'Legend Mo'

GB's Bradshaw into pole vault final

In the midst of the Mo Farah victory-lap chaos, Holly Bradshaw has done the bizzo in pole vault qualification.

The Briton is into Sunday's final.

Farah wins gold

Men's 10,000m final

There is no rush for the Central Line tonight.

The London Stadium seats are empty, but only because their occupants are on their feet, clapping and barking as loud as sealions.

Farah's lap of honour is long and loud.

Mo Farah wins 10,000m gold

Brendan Foster

Olympic medallist and BBC commentator on BBC One

When you look at the individual World Championships gold medal table, Mo Farah is now second behind Usain Bolt. Six golds and one silver.

I bet you don't see this much excitement over next 12 months at this stadium. I bet West Ham don't give their fans this much entertainment.

Is that all you've got?

Mo Farah wins 10,000m gold

Mike Costello

BBC Radio 5 live athletics commentator

It was astonishing the discipline he showed to win and he looked so in control it was almost like his great hero Muhammad Ali to George Foreman in the Rumble of the Jungle when he said 'is that all you've got?'

'Farah's best ever'

Brendan Foster

That was the best ever. Mo's last ever 10,000m in a Championship in his favourite stadium. He was hurting in the middle. He brought the crowd to their feet. He is a ruthless running machine.
