Mo Farah hoping for more gold at Commonwealth Games

Olympic hero Mo Farah is hoping for another double gold at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The 5000 and 10,000 metre Olympic champion told ITV News his aim was to "definitely to try and compete in both events" again and that he hoped the nation would once again get behind him and the whole team.

Although he'll be running in an English vest, he said: "There's not long to go now..... The nation behind you, the crowd, that's what gets me excited."

He added: "The Commonwealth Games is different from the Olympics. In terms of which countries are involved, you have everyone at the Olympics. So it's not going to be the same, but at the same time it's another title.

"I'm very excited to compete for England and go out there."

Although there are fewer nations competing at the Commonwealth Games, Farah said his events were tougher than the Olympics and even the World Championships.

He added that he would have liked to have done better at his marathon running and said he was not expecting any records to be broken in Glasgow.

He said: "In terms of championships, there is never a world record."
