DOUBLE Olympic and world champion Mo Farah has been forced to withdraw from Saturday’s cross-country race in Edinburgh after a bout of the flu left him behind with his training schedule.

Farah, 31, had been due to represent Great Britain and Northern Ireland against the United States and Europe in the Great Edinburgh XCountry international challenge. He said: “I’ve to cancel my participation as I had the flu.”
