An independent audit into UK Olympic champion Mo Farah and his training programme, the Oregon Project, today backed findings that there was "no evidence of any impropriety" from the runner.

UK Athletics commissioned the audit into its involvement with the project after it was alleged coach Alberto Salazar and his US team, the Nike Oregon Project, had violated anti-doping rules and doped US record holder Galen Rupp.

The body found no evidence of wrongdoing by Farah in the initial findings of its investigation into allegations of doping against Salazar, who strenuously denied all the accusations against him.

A statement from UK Athletics today's independent audit findings had reiterated that view, though a number of recommendations had been made.

No further details would be given as the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) was currently investigating allegations relating to staff within the Oregon Project, the statement added.
