Mo Farah collapses on the line after finishing second in New York City half-marathon.


Mo Farah collapsed and was taken away in a wheelchair after finishing second in the New York City half marathon on Sunday.

The double Olympic champion fell awkwardly around the six-mile mark but carried on and finished behind winner Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya in 61mins 8secs.

Farah, 30, was strong enough to pass and hold off third-placed Stephen Sambu from Kenya in a sprint finish, but then fell to the ground minutes after crossing the line and required medical attention.
