Olympic athletics: Farah adds 5000m title to 10000m goldLondon: Britain`s Mo Farah added the 5000 metres title to his 10000 metres gold medal at the London Olympics Saturday.

Farah took the lead at the bell and held it in a courageous, lung-busting final 100 meters to take gold in 13 minutes, 41.66 seconds.

Ethiopia`s world bronze medalist Dejen Gebremeskel came strong at the death but had to settle for silver in 13:41.98.

Thomas Pkemei Longosiwa of Kenya won a surprise bronze in 13:42.36.

It makes a long-distance double for Farah, who became the first Briton to win the Olympic 10000 metres a week ago.
