US TV anchor asks Mo Farah, 'Haven't you run before?'

A news anchor on US TV station WDSU failed to recognise double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah after he won the New Orleans half-marathon, asking him, "Haven't you run before?

Farah appeared to think he had misheard the question as he paused before saying, "sorry?".

LaTonya Norton then continued, "This isn't your first time?", which prompted the athlete to smile as he said: "No, no it's not my first time".
