Tensions were already running extremely high watching Mo Farah go for his third Olympic gold.
And then, just as we all thought he was running well and looking great out there in the 10,000 metres, he went and fell over. Yep, he literally fell to the floor.
I think the entire world screamed when #Mofarah fell! #Olympics pic.twitter.com/81bzXYhSIq

Of all the people to fall…
It’s all right though, we saw a thumbs up from him.
Just watched back to check. And yes #MoFarah did just give us a thumbs up after he fell to tell us he's ok. #bbcrio2016

No one really understood what had happened, but luckily, Farah got right back up again.

Like Beijing, a little scare as @Mo_Farah is clipped & falls but normal service resumes as he bounces back up #Rio2016

Then we were just left hoping there are no more falls…
I can't really be doing with this much nervous excitement at nearly 2 am #MoFarah #Rio2016

But come on, it’s Mo. Of course he got the gold.
