The University of Aberdeen medicine student cruised to victory on Sunday morning as he crossed the line in 16 minutes and 33 seconds.

Warsame (22) who runs for the University of Aberdeen Athletics Club, recorded a new personal best during his winning run which he said was a target before the race.

"I did a 16:52 at Scottish Junior Athletics back in 2018 and I had a personal best for two years," he said.

"So I thought that I would give this one a go and get a personal best so I am happy with this.

"I have been focussing on this race for a while, now I will get back to training and decide what is in front of me."
