There was no medal for Laura Muir though, who finished outside the medals in the 5,000m.

UK Sport had set Great Britain a target of winning six to eight medals at the championships but Mo Farah was the only athlete to win an individual medal.

Great Britain did narrowly miss out on more medals though, coming in fourth place, fives times.

British team skipper Doyle said: "If you look at the team as a whole, we've performed really well. We might have just made the medal target but sometimes that's irrelevant.

"Look at the bigger picture and I'm super proud of this team."
