Mo Farah winning the 10,000m. His foot stepped outside the track when he was clipped (26:11 in video) but it was accidental.

Can someone answer me this question. Where Farah stepped off the track in the last this not a disqualifican?
Surely once you step off the track it's the same as touching the white line or crossing into a lane during a 200m event.
could someone clear this up for's driving me crazy!

See video clip in post. (26:11)

From what I understand, he was clipped from behind and he put his foot outside the track to regain his balance. i.e. it was accidental.

If he had done the same say trying to pass someone in lane 1 on the inside then it would be a disqualifying offence.
