FARAH CLAIMED 5000M GOLD SIX DAYS AFTER WINNING 10000M
Britain's Mo Farah rubber-stamped his status as Britain's greatest ever long distance runner as he became only the second man to hold both Olympic and World Championship 5000m and 10000m gold medals after Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele.
Just six days after claiming 10000m gold, Farah stormed over the finish line, with Ethiopian Hagos Gebrhiwet in hot pursuit, in 13 minutes 26.98 seconds.
In typical fashion, the 30-year-old Brit started from the back early on in the race but moved to the front with three laps to go. A host of Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes made their move with one kilometre left of the race - attempting to disrupt Farah with team tactics. The Brit was unfazed, however, demonstrating his wonderful final-lap speed as he took off, leaving his opponents in his wake, to claim gold.
MURRAY AND DJOKOVIC BOTH BEATEN IN CINCY
Wimbledon champion Andy Murray suffered a big blow just days before defending his US Open crown as he was comprehensively beaten by Tomas Berdych.
The British player, who currently holds the US Open and Wimbledon titles as well as an Olympic gold medal, capitulated in his quarter-final against the Czech, losing in straight sets 3-6 4-6.
An error-strewn match - with Murray frequently making simple errors, including two to give away breaks of serve - allowed Berdych to ease into the semi-finals and set up a clash with either Rafael Nadal who beat Roger Federer 5-7 6-4 6-3.
World number one Novak Djokovic was also beaten as his bid to complete the career Golden Masters Slam was ended.
The Serb lost to American John Isner in three hard-fought sets 6-7(5) 6-3 5-7, the match lasting two hours and 23 minutes.
FRASER-PRYCE COMPLETED DOUBLE, GEMILI RAN SUB-20 200M AND USA CLAIMED RELAY GOLD
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price secured her second gold of the World Championships as she became just the second woman since Katrin Krabbe in 1991 to win the world sprint double.
Following her 100m success earlier in the week, Fraser-Pryce completed a glorious double in a time of 22.17, with Olympic champion Allyson Felix pulling up with a hamstring injury during the race.
19-year-old Adam Gemili was the joint-fastest athlete to qualify from the men's 200m heats with a time of 20.17, which put him fifth on the UK's all-time and second in the U23 category.
And it was in the semi-finals that Gemili really excelled as he notched a personal best with a first sub-20 second finish for the fist time in his career, crossing the finish line in 19.98
USA's men's relay team bounced back from Olympic disappointment as they claimed 4x400m relay gold, with LaShawn Merritt anchoring the side in a comprehensive win.
Following their shock defeat at the hands of the Bahamas in last year's Olympic Games, the American team proved beyond doubt that they are the strongest side in the event as they beat Jamaica and Russia to gold.
THIS VIDEO MADE US LAUGH...AND WINCE

THE AGENDA – WHAT'S ON TODAY
The penultimate day of the World Athletics Championships in Moscow will certainly be overshadowed on Saturday as the new Premier League season gets underway.
David Moyes takes charge of Manchester United for the first time in the league as they travel to the Liberty Stadium for their clash with Swansea City.
Arsene Wenger's Arsenal, who have so far failed to spend a single penny on any new players, play host to Aston Villa whilst Luis Suarez - who is serving a ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic at the end of last season- will be in the stands at Anfield to watch Liverpool take on Stoke City.
Away from the Premier League, there are seven medals up for grabs in Moscow with Britain's Adam Gemili competing against Usain Bolt in the men's 200m final.
