Mo Farah has claimed he is "100% clean" with regards to doping allegations made against his coach Alberto Salazar. Farah, who won two gold medals at the London 2012 Olympic Games, told Sky Sports that the reflection the allegations are having on his reputation is "not right and not fair".

Farah said: "These are just allegations. If there is wrongdoing then I'm the first person to run, but you have to give people a chance in life and give them the benefit of the doubt.

"I work hard every day. I put my body through hell. Seven months of the year I am away from my family and I miss their birthdays. That really kills me."

"So for people to label me a cheat is not fair. If I am a cheat, prove it. If not, leave me alone to represent my country and make people proud of me."

Salazar is set to be investigated by the UK Anti-Doping organisation and US Anti-Doping Agency.
