‘You never write the fact’ – Salazar criticism frustrates Farah

Four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah has split with coach Alberto Salazar and will return to Britain.

Farah, 34, 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.

Salazar is being investigated by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after BBC’s Panorama made allegations about drugs use at his US training base.

“I’m moving back to London. I really miss home,” Farah said.
