Sir Mo ‘upset’ over link to new doping claims in athletics

SIR MO FARAH insists he is ‘a clean athlete who has never broken the rules’ after fresh allegations were published about his coach Alberto Salazar.

Four-time Olympic champion Farah, 33, has remained loyal to the American who is under the spotlight yet again after a leaked report from the US Anti-Doping Agency claims he may have abused prescription drugs and infusions.

In a swipe at The Sunday Times, which published the fresh allegations, Sir Mo said it was ‘upsetting’ that some parts of the media continued to try to associate him with allegations of drug misuse.

‘I am a clean athlete who has never broken the rules in regards to substances, methods or dosages,’ he said. ‘If USADA or any other anti-doping body has evidence of wrongdoing, they should publish it and take action rather than allow the media to be judge and jury.’

The leaked report alleges Salazar routinely gave Farah and other athletes legal drugs with potentially harmful side-effects without a justifiable medical reason. Salazar has denied all accusations of wrongdoing since allegations were first made in 2015.
