Mo Farah pulls out of Glasgow

The 31-year-old Farah, who won the 5,000 and 10,000 metres titles at the London Olympics and the world championships in Moscow last year, was preparing to run both distances in Glasgow.

But he said he had decided to remain at his training camp in Font Romeu in Switzerland to concentrate on being fit for next month’s European Championships in Zurich.

“The sickness I had two weeks ago was a big setback for me,” Farah said in an England team statement. “Training is getting better but I need another few weeks to get back to the level I was at in 2012 and 2013.”
