Feeling of breaking wind during Salah

I learnt about the following Hadith: It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “There is no prayer when food is ready or when one is trying to stop oneself doing either of the two things that break wudoo’ (i.e., urination and defecation).” My question is if I feel the need to break wind after having started my Salah, should I break my Salah or should I try to stop the wind from breaking (the feeling goes away if I try to stop the wind in a few seconds) and continue with my Salah?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

The Salah will be valid.
