Farah to bid adieu to track after 2017 season

Johannesburg: British sprinter Mo Farah has confirmed he will retire from track after 2017 season in order to spend more time with his family.

According to Sport24, the World Championship in 2017 will be his last major competition before he switches his full attention to the road-running.

The 33-year-old comments came ahead of the Diamond League event to be held in Birmingham on Sunday, which he missed last year after his coach Alberto Salazar was caught up in doping allegations.

Reflecting on the same, Farah said it is a new year and that he is only looking forward to the race ahead. (ANI)
