Mo Farah accuses media of `trying to destroy` his achievements

In 2013 UKA performance director Neil Black described Fudge as "a key part of the team around Mo Farah".

Britain's 4×400 metres women won a brilliant silver and the GB men bronze as the host nation finished the World Championships on a high.

It was his final championships as a track runner and Farah, 34, is expected to concentrate on the big city marathons in the future.

Clark, who had run a personal best in the individual 400m event earlier in the competition, said: "I've learnt a lot, used the atmosphere and to finish it coming away with a medal, I've really enjoyed it".

"I was so impressed by how he came and fought like insane to produce his best performance, whether it was first, second or third. I hope he will do well".

Barry Fudge is the head of endurance at British Athletics and has worked closely with Farah and his coach, Alberto Salazar, often deputising for the American in running the distance star's training programmes and also acting as a liaison between the governing body and the Salazar-run Nike Oregon Project.

Great Britain's Robbie Grabarz, who won bronze at the 2012 Olympics, finished sixth after failing to jump 2.29m - the height he cleared for third in London.

Afterwards, Doyle said: "We knew were capable of getting a medal today, but we knew it would be tough - we all know America and Jamaica are strong, but then you've got Nigeria and Poland too".

"I think it's exciting times for British sport, I really do". "I've achieved what I have achieved - you're trying to destroy it", he insisted. It wasn't to be this year but the aim is to be at three major championships next year and win more titles, ' he said. Tokyo is our primary aim.

Black also admitted to a few nerves on Saturday night when Britain had only one medal and speculation was growing over his position.

"If you could see and feel the blood, sweat and tears that go into them, they are certainly not (cheap medals)", he said. We are not surprised.

"You have to educate the right people to say what's fair. But we were massively confident - it was just a matter of how many relay medals we would win".
