Four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah has split with coach Alberto Salazar and will return to Britain.

Farah, 34, who won 5,000m and 10,000m gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016, said his decision was based on a desire to move back to London.

Salazar is being investigated by the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) after BBC's Panorama made allegations about drugs use at his US training base.

"I'm moving back to London. I really miss home," Farah said.

He will now work with Gary Lough, who previously coached wife and women's marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe.

Farah has been coached by Salazar at the Nike Oregon Project camp since 2011, winning six world titles in addition to the four Olympic golds.

Both Farah and Salazar deny they have ever broken anti-doping rules.

"I am firm believer in clean sport and I strongly believe that anyone who breaks the rules should be punished," Farah told the Sun.
