Mo Farah missed the chance to book his place at next month’s Olympics at the British 10,000m Championships.

The 38-year-old was eighth at the British 10,000m Championships and now faces a race against the clock to ensure he can post the qualifying time ahead of the Tokyo Games.

He finished in 27 minutes 50.54 seconds and will need to go under 27 minutes 28 seconds by the end of the month to guarantee him the chance to defend his 10,000m titles from 2012 and 2016.

It was a disappointing return to the track for the four-time Olympic champion as he made a comeback for the first time in four years, with Marc Scott claiming the British title.
