Morhad AMDOUNI (FRA) - bronze

On his motivation going into the race:

"I wanted to imitate Mo Farah with my two medals. My recuperation was not the most professional, because I partied a lot after my 10K medal. I really wanted to savour it."

On the race winner, Jakob INGEBRIGTSEN (NOR):

"Jakob is unbeatable at the moment. He finished two whole seconds before me. He was such much stronger than me.

"I just did not recover well enough from the 10K. But at the next Europeans in Paris, I will have my home crowd."

On what the future holds for him:

"I needed to get 30 years to win a medal. But there is no age for a medal. These two medals will now help me financially. I am now more calm on this side and can prepare well for the worlds [championships] next year."
