When you're good, you're good. Mo Farah is so good that the two-time Olympic champion has repeated the trick at the World Championships in Beijing, winning the 5,000m to go with the 10,000m gold he picked up last week.

So good in fact, that the 32-year-old stopped for a drink about 1,200m in today's race at Beijing's Bird's Nest stadium.

As The Independent points out, Farah is actually the holder of the 'triple double', having also won both titles at the 2013 World Championships as well.

Different league.
