However, Chelimo was later disqualified for obstruction with Ethiopia's Yomif Kejelcha promoted to third place. Victory was particularly sweet as Edris had defeated him in the 5,000m final at the world championships in London two weeks ago, ending his streak of 10 gold medals dating back to the 2011 world championships. It was also Farah's first career Diamond League trophy.

Just.https://t.co/hNQKGOcakH pic.twitter.com/vGZKpBBczF — BBC Sport (@BBCSport) August 24, 2017"I wanted to win, and it's amazing that I have won, but it was hard work," said Farah. "I will miss the track, the people, my fans. I have enjoyed running in stadiums for a lot of years, but now first of all I will enjoy being with my family." While Farah took the applause of the Zurich crowd, it proved a night to forget for controversial American sprinter Gatlin who captured the world 100m title in London.

Miller-Uibo, who was only third in the event at the recent world championships in London, won in a time of 21.88sec ahead of Thompson (22.00) and Marie-Josee Ta Lou of the Ivory Coast (22.09), the silver medallist in London. Schippers struggled home in fourth place (22.36).
Qatari high jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim struggled in the rain to improve on his season best of 2.40m set in Birmingham last week. He still won with a clearance of 2.36m on his third attempt, some distance back from Javier Sotomayor's world record of 2.45m set in 1993.
