Sir Mo Farah reveals big news

RETURN: Sir Mo Farah

OLYMPIC CHAMPION Sir Mo Farah has announced his split from coach Alberto Salazar and will return to Britain.

Farah, who won 5,000m and 10,000m gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016, said his decision was based on a desire to move back to London and missing home.

In a video, Farah said: "I'm moving back to London. I really miss home." The split from his long term coach follows Salazar being investigated by the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) after BBC's Panorama made allegations about drugs use at his US training base.

Farah will now work with Gary Lough, who previously coached - and is married to - women's marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe.

Salazar said he has offered to continue working with Farah in an advisory role.
