Sir Mo Farah recovered from his World Championship heartache as he caught some fresh air and views from the top of a London Eye pod.
The four-time Olympic champion took the Mobot to new heights as he struck a pose on the landmark on Sunday morning (August 13).
The 34-year-old, who left Somalia aged eight and settled in Feltham , is calling time on his track career at the end of the month.
On Saturday evening (August 12) the America-based athlete broke down in tears as he claimed a silver in the 5,000m at the World Championships in London.
Yet Sir Mo was back in his tracksuit on Sunday morning on the banks of the Thames as he clambered outside a capsule on top of the 135m high wheel.
Beaming, Sir Mo said: "London's where it's at. This is where I grew up, this is my city and I really enjoyed this morning ... on the London Eye and going out the top and seeing Big Ben.
"It's amazing. London has a lot to say and it has a great icon.
"It's amazing for me, the journey started in London and I always wanted to end it in London and with the World Championship here ...was a good way to end my career."
Sir Mo won the 10,000m and 5,000m at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships while he also claimed the 5,000m crown in 2011, taking silver in the 10,000m - the last time he was beaten.
It followed a pair of golds at both the Rio and London Olympics.
He crossed the line in 13 minutes 33.22 seconds on Saturday but was defeated by Ethiopia's Muktar Edris after failing to mount a recovery in the last 200m in a frantic sprint finish.
Sir Mo is due to retire from the track at the end of the month, after the Diamond League final in Zurich, to focus on the marathon.
He said: "Training has been going pretty well. I came to this championship, gave it my best and came away with one gold and one silver.
"I'm disappointed with silver but at the same time a better man won on the day and there's nothing I could have done. I did my best and in athletics there's no hiding: what you put in is what you get out.
"It's taken him (Edris) years to be able to beat me and finally they got that last night."
He said there was "no secret" to his ability, adding: "Just work hard, believe in yourself and keep grafting - that's the key.
"I want to close this chapter in my life in terms of track and field and move to the roads and see what I can do in the marathon."
After his skyline view of the capital, Sir Mo then greeted his waxwork from Madame Tussauds in London with a "What up Mo!" before grabbing selfies with his double.
