What a performance by Callum Hawkins as he finished fourth in the World Championships for the second time in his career.

It was a superb and well-timed run from Callum who joined the leaders on the final 2k and was only just edged out of the medals by a matter of seconds.

Callum clocked 2.10.57 with an Ethiopian 1-2.

A remarkable effort as months of hard training and meticulous planning paid off.

Well done to Callum, coach Robert and all the family.
