VIDEO: Mo Farah asked 'Haven't you run before?' by clueless journalist

Mo Farah's done a bit of running in his time. Had a bash at the Olympics, it went quite well. So imagine his surprise when an American news anchor asked him if he'd run before.

Being interviewed by WDSU anchor LaTonya Norton after winning the New Orleans half-marathon in a record time of one hour 59 seconds, the double Olympic champion was mistaken for a plucky amateur runner.

Norton asked Farah: "Haven't you run before? This isn't your first time?" Farah, a touch taken aback, replied: "Sorry?", with the cringeworthy interview unfolding like a car crash.
