Sir Mo Farah’s infamous Olympic double-double was completed at the Rio 2016 Games, successfully defending the 5,000m and 10,000m gold medals he had first achieved at London 2012 for Team GB.

But that was far from all for a runner with 19 track gold medals across all events, which began in 2006, picking up two European gold medals in Barcelona four years later.

He was to grace the world scene in 2011 in Daegu, becoming a six-time world champion in a run that saw him not beaten in a major final for six years.

Farah's track career came to a dramatic end on home soil at the London 2017 World Championships, taking another gold in the 10,000m as well as silver in his shorter distance.

Farah's bid for further glory at Tokyo 2020 in marathon has been augmented by early success over 26 miles.

He finished third in his first-ever London Marathon before becoming the first British man to win the Chicago Marathon in 22 years.
