Revealing the incident in his autobiography, which was published yesterday, Farah said: "I was running up and down repeatedly on this one hill when I noticed a couple with a baby in a pushchair walking up the same hill.

"They were taking up nearly the entire path. After three or four attempts to run around the couple I got a bit fed up.

The man reportedly refused to move, and Farah added: "Things quickly escalated into a heated argument...Then it all kicked off. Before I knew it, we were having a full-blown fight, rolling around on the ground, trading blows."
