Ethiopian Muktar Edris won gold in the 5000m at the World Athletics Championships in London on Saturday night.
Behind Edris, Farah dug deep to battle back from fourth to second when space opened up on the inside over the last few metres to take silver in 13:33.22.
Farah just couldn't keep up with them and he was grimacing as he fought off Paul Chelimo from the United States to make sure he took silver. "After the 10km, he was maybe exhausted, so he did not have enough for the last kick". I was stronger. Mo has many victories but now I have one.
Yet the two Ethiopian greats also went chasing records to extraordinary effect, Bekele setting a total of three new world marks at 5,000m and 10,000m and Gebrselassie seven at the two events.
I have won the gold in front of his home crowd.
"I didn't have much support, but we did it. I don't know how you can't see him as our greatest ever athlete".

Paramedics arrived on scene shortly afterwards and were able to save the officer's life despite the serious nature of his wounds. Smith is still on medical leave, but he told WJCL that he wants to return to the department by the start of next year.
Patrick Tiernan of Australia moved out with five laps to go to up the pace but with two laps left he was pulled in. Although Farah still kept in touch he had started to feel the pace and could not get away.
"I got boxed in early on which doesn't usually happen and by the time I'd got out I'd wasted a little bit of energy".
"It's been fantastic. It's been a long journey but it's been incredible", said Farah who was embraced by his fans as he made his way around the stadium on a lap of honour, stopping to sign autographs and pose for "selfies".
"I gave it all but I had nothing left at the end", a crestfallen and emotional Farah said.
"I thought it might be possible, but my legs had it". I'm happy with performance.
His final push for the finish earned him a bronze medal at the IAAF World Championships. "I'm taking over next year - 2019, I am after that Gold". Mo is leaving, someone else has to take over now.
