BEIJING: Britain's Mo Farah stormed down the final straight to retain his 10,000 metres world title in some style today. He extended his dominance of men's distance running at major championships.

Bumped by one of his rivals as he took the first bend after the bell, the 32-year-old regained his composure to cross the line in 27 minutes 01.13 seconds.

Kenya's Geoffrey Kamworor was outpaced over the final 100 metres but finished second in 27.01.76 to claim silver, while his compatriot Paul Tanui was a distant third in 24.32.34.

Reigning Olympic and world 5,000 and 10,000 metres champion Farah has now won six straight distance titles at major championships going back to his second place in the longer event at the 2011 world championships in Daegu.
