Comfortable start for Farah
Mo Farah showed no hangover from the 10,000m final as he made comfortable progress in his 5,000m heat in the World Championships.
The 28-year-old finished second, 0.07 seconds behind Imane Merga in 13 minutes 38.03 seconds.
Farah hit the front with a lap to go, but was made to work hard down the home straight.
Defending 800m bronze medallist Jenny Meadows also made serene progress, but there was disappointment for Greg Rutherford in the long jump after a hamstring injury ended his hopes of securing a place in the final.
Farah had to settle for silver behind Ibrahim Jeilan in the 10,000m final as the unfancied Ethiopian overhauled him in the last 20 metres.
The double European champion only confirmed on Wednesday he would race the 5,000m after giving his body time to recover from Sunday's gruelling race.
