Farah pulls out of Italian event
Mo Farah
Farah finished 10th in the World Cross Country Championships
Britain's Mo Farah has decided not to compete in the 10,000m challenge in Ferrara, Italy, on 7 April in order to rest a slight thigh strain.

The 24-year-old European 5,000m silver medallist and cross country champion suffered the problem during Saturday's World Cross Country Championships.

"Mo should only need a couple of days off," said coach Alan Storey.

"But it seems more logical to end his winter campaign now and take a break before preparing for the summer."
