Farah doubt for Commonwealths

Double Olympic champion Mo Farah admits he may be forced to miss the Commonwealth Games.

Farah pulled out of the weekend's Glasgow Grand Prix after suffering from abdominal pains.

Farah, 31, will make a decision on contesting the 5,000 metres and 10,000m at this month's Games in Glasgow "further down the line".

"It's a good question, I don't know," Farah told the BBC when asked whether he would be ready for Glasgow.

"Hopefully I should be good, but I kind of missed a bit of training, and obviously I pulled out of the weekend's Grand Prix.So I'm actually just going to get back into full training, and then we'll see."

Farah said team doctors have given him the "all-clear" to return to training, but admitted he remains unable to confirm his participation at the Glasgow event, with track and field competition starting on July 27.

"I came back and had some tests done through British Athletics, which went well and now I've got the all-clear to get back into training, and I'll see what I can do," he said.

"I'm just saying where I am right now. My aim is to compete in both events, but at the same time I'm getting back into training, I'm having this bit of training, but you know, we'll make a decision further down the line."

Farah is scheduled to race over two miles on the roads of central London at the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games on Sunday, but that participation would now appear to be in doubt given his comments.
