Mo Farah ran the fastest 5,000m time of the year and everyone is beyond excited for Rio now


Mo Farah looks to be heading into the Rio Olympics in his best ever shape after a ridiculously impressive 5,000 metres victory at the Muller Anniversary Games.

The 33-year-old, back at the Olympic Stadium in London, finished with a final lap of 56.95 seconds to cross the line in 12mins 59.29 seconds, the fastest time in the world this year.

It was a Farah special, pulling clear shortly after the 3,000 metre mark - finishing more than 15 seconds ahead of Scot Andy Butchart in second place.

A pretty serious statement of intent, too, in his final race before the Rio Games and his quickest run since before the London Olympics.

It's got everyone really excited about Britain's medal prospects next month.

It did put everyone's 5k Park Run times into rather harsh perspective though.

Go Mo.
