London 2012: Olympics day 15 in pictures

A triumphant Mo Farah celebrated with Usain Bolt on day 15 of the Olympics as both men added another gold medal to their collection.

British distance runner Farah won the men’s 5,000m race, adding to the gold medal he won earlier in the Games for the 10,000m.

And Bolt received his third gold of the Games when he and Jamaican teammates Nesta Carter, Michael Frater and Yohan Blake won the men’s 4x100m relay in a new world record time.

Farah and Bolt celebrated by impersonating each other’s signature moves - Mo doing the lightning bolt with Bolt recreating the Mobot.

There was also success for Team GB in the diving pool, as Tom Daley won bronze in the men’s 10m dive. He had to retake his first dive after complaining that he was distracted by camera flashes from the 17,500 strong crowd.
