LONDON (AP) Double Olympic champion Mo Farah has been questioned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency as part of an investigation into allegations surrounding his coach Alberto Salazar.
The Sunday Mirror newspaper said Farah spoke with USADA in a hotel in London on Saturday for five hours. Britain’s Press Association said the meeting was believed to be routine and had been scheduled for some time.
Farah’s questioning came a day after he won the 3,000 meters in a Diamond League meeting at London’s Olympic Stadium.
