Farah through to 5000m final
Great Britain's Olympic 10,000m champion Mo Farah has booked his place in Saturday's 5000m final.
Farah's semi-final did not quite go to plan - going into the final lap there were still a lot of runners in contention to finish in the top five and book their place in the medal event.
Farah finished third in a sprint finish, and he will try to win his second gold of the Games on Saturday night.
"It was pretty difficult," Farah told the BBC. "I was a bit tired, it took a bit more out of me than I was expecting, but I'm really happy with where I am now and I've got a couple of days off.
"I kept getting caught, there was a lot of pushing and shoving going on, that's what happens in the heats. Hopefully it will settle down in the final.
"I'm going to go out and give it 110%, that's all you can do. It just depends how my legs allow me (to run).
"I will have done 50 laps around that track (by the end of the 5,000m final) and it wasn't the easiest 10k, but I've got a great medical team. I'll be in good hands."
Fellow-Brit Nick McCormick failed to make the final, finishing 12th in the second heat.
