Berlin (AFP) –


Norway's Jakob Ingebrigtsen, just 17, captured the European 5000m title on Saturday to add to the 1500m he won 24 hours earlier.

The teenager edged out his brother Henrik with France's Morhad Amdouni, who was the 10,000m champion, claiming bronze.

Already the youngest ever European champion by winning the 1500m, Ingebrigtsen crossed the line in 13min 17.06sec, with his brother in 13:18.75 and Amdouni clocking 13:19.14.

Mahiedine Mekhissi, who had won the 3000m steeplechase for his fifth career European title on Thursday, pulled out of the 5000m earlier in the day.
