Sir Mo Farah ‘sucking it all in’ after finishing eighth in his penultimate race

Sir Mo Farah said he and his family were “sucking it all in” after he continued his farewell with an eighth-placed finish in the Great Manchester Run 10K, the penultimate race of his career. Britain’s greatest distance runner posted a time of 29 minutes and 11 seconds as he took part in the event for the first time since winning it in 2018. Farah, who came ninth in last month’s London Marathon, is now set to conclude his glittering career with September’s Great North Run, the race he won for six successive years from 2014 to 2019.
