    Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele's hopes of a Golden League clean sweep in the distance events were ended when the world record holder was beaten by Kenyan Isaac Songok.

    Songok, who was 10th at the world championships last year, took command of the race with 200 metres to go, winning in 12 minutes 55.79 seconds, a world-leading performance.

    Bekele failed to muster his devastating kick and was a distant second in 12:58.22 seconds.
