Bronze for Mo Farah in Cardiff in World Half Marathon

Britain's Mo Farah claimed a bronze medal as Kenya's Geoffrey Kamworor won back-to-back World Half Marathon titles in testing conditions in Cardiff.

Farah's time of 59 minutes 59 seconds in a fast-paced race was 27 seconds off his own European record.

Defending champion Kamworor won in 59 minutes 10 seconds despite falling at the start, while compatriot Bedan Karoki came second.

It was the biggest race ever held in Wales, with 16,000 runners and £2m raised for charities.

The fastest Welshman was Carmarthenshire's Dewi Griffiths who finished 27th.
