The combined forces from Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia tried to shake him in a fast run but there was no stopping his final kick as he won gold in a season leading 26 minutes, 49.51 seconds despite a near-trip with 300 meters to go.
As he got back to upright, there was no need to ask for a response from the stands as Farah stretched his legs down the back straight to a chorus of noise.
"It wasn't an easy race".
"It's been hard but I'm just mentally strong I guess".
Mo Farah will bring down the curtain on his championship career with a bid for yet another distance double in London but, despite his unmatchable palmares, the Briton still finds himself fighting for appreciation in some quarters. "The guys gave it to me, it wasn't about Mo, it was about 'how do we beat Mo?'"
"I don't know how far I can get but I am aiming for the top". "It helped a lot having that experience".
"That was a special moment for me". "This was very special".

"Training has been going really well so I just want to get through the rounds and save as much energy as possible for the final".
Though perhaps not a shockingly slow time, given compatriot Julian Forte dipped clocked 9.99secs and youngster Christine Coleman went 10.01secs, it was short of the usual standard Bolt has delivered over his brilliant career.

Two-time world cross-country champion Geoffrey Kamworor took up the pace with over 21 laps to run - Farah was seventh from the back but looking comfortable.
If Farah and Bolt are the main attractions over the next ten days there's hope that new stars will emerge, says Ron Lewis of The Times. I think these are the worst ones I've ever experienced. That is the highlight of my year, my life, it was just fantastic.
"The last lap, that was close - I honestly thought at one point I was gone because I stumbled".
With nine laps to go the pace setting was taken up by young Eritrean Aron Kifle but despite the constant changing of pace Farah despite being elbowed looked comfortable.
"If not, I'd ask him how he keeps so cool and relaxed in such a pressurised situation".
