Mo Farah has one his fourth consecutive Greath North Run in Newcastle.

Farah recently retired from track events to focus on his road racing, and finished in one hour six seconds.

The 34-year-old beat New Zealand's Jake Robinson, who finished in second.

Farah has now equalled the record of four victories held by Benson Masya, who competed in the 1990s.

He told the BBC: "That was really, really tough.

"I think it was the lack of training really.

"With four miles to go I was hanging on - but I magnaged to believe in myself and know that at the end I can sprint.

"The kick worked for me and I'm realy enjoying mysef and lliving teh dream. I'm so pleased with how the season has gone."
