Mo Farah is keeping himself ahead of the herd – by running alongside cattle in Ethiopia.

Britain’s four-time Olympic gold medal-winning runner took to Instagram on Monday to post numerous photos of him enjoying his scenic run, with the caption: ‘Long run this morning…!!!’

Farah can be seen running topless next to a herd of cows and alongside a man riding a horse in Ethiopia in the blazing-hot conditions.

Farah recently reiterated his stance that he is innocent of any drug-related cheating and that he is happy for his historical samples to to be retested if to prove it.

The 33-year-old is in the spotlight after renewed attention following a leaked copy of a report by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which raised new concerns over the methods used by Farah’s coach Alberto Salazar.

Eyebrows have been raised by a claim in the USADA report that Farah had received an infusion of L-carnitine – a legal substance, but only in certain small doses.

Reportedly, USADA have asked their UK equivalent to retest Farah’s samples.

‘I’m not aware of any request,’ Farah responded.

‘But as I’ve said many times, I’m happy to be tested anytime, anywhere and have any of my samples tested or retested now or at anytime in the future, by any official body.’

One Response to Mo Farah enjoys long run in the Ethiopian heat with cattle after responding to drug retest demands

  1. I have a big respect for Mo Farah, he is the best Somali runner ever, equivalent to our Abebe Bikila, which means Ethiopia is 70 years ahead of Somalis in terms of athletics. I as Ethiopian, I support Mo Farah all the time, except when he is running against Ethiopians. He has been discriminated in UK, he achieved a lot and yet racist people don’t accept him as British, he never won sport person of the year when a white tennis player won three times one after the other, is it fair? this year for the first time he received the title of SIR from the queen, then the media focus on him as drug cheats blah blah, I don’t know the facts.

    Having said the above, Mo Farah is the greatest athlete of his generation, but not the greatest athlete of ALL TIME. Usain Bolt is the greatest athlete of ALL TIME. To be the greatest athlete of ALL TIME he needs to break the records held previously by Kenenisa or other athletes. Haile Gebresilasie broke the previous records after records, when Kenenisa came also broke previous records, which makes them the greatest of ALL TIME, but Mo Farah is great but not the greatest until he broke records to show that he is the king of kings.
