2012 world youth champion Edris, 23, produced a strong charge on the final stretch to lift his first ever major senior world title in 13:32.79, leaving two-time Olympic 5,000 titlist and newly crowned 10,000m winner Farah, 34, to the second place in 13:33.22. Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo of the United States took bronze in 13:33.30.
Edris' fellow Ethiopians 2016 world indoor champion Yomif Kejelcha, 21, and this year's U18 3,000m winner Selemon Barega placed fourth and fifth respectively. Enditem
