Mo Farah announces he is changing his name ahead of marathon push


Mo Farah has announced that he wants to be known by a different name as he embarks on his road career.

The four-time Olympic gold medallist, who brought the curtain down on his championship track career with a gold and a silver at the World Athletics Championships, wants to rebrand as he tackles marathons.

Farah, 34, now wants to be known as “Mohamed”.

“My road name is Mohamed,” he said. “I just feel like Mo is done. I need to forget about what I’ve achieved and what I’ve done.”
