Mo Farah to compete in Glasgow Commonwealth Games

Double Olympic gold medal winner Mo Farah has announced he will compete in this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The 31-year-old athlete told his one million followers:

The 5,000 metres and 10,000m London 2012 Olympic Champion hasn't yet decided what events he will compete in.

But it is unlikely he will attempt the gruelling task of running the marathon after his coach Alberto Salazar advised him to forget about the discipline until after the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Farah's participation in the Games is likely to increase demand for tickets this summer and organisers have already said that demand is "unprecedented".
