Athletics Farah claims he was racially abused in Germany

Mo Farah claimed today that he was racially harassed while travelling through Germany’s Munich Airport.

The four-time Olympic champion left Britain for Ethiopia yesterday to complete his final training block before next month’s London Marathon and his journey took him via Germany, where he had an altercation with a pushy law enforcement officer.

Farah filmed the exchange on Instagram Live, later posting it to his Instagram and Twitter feeds with the caption: “Sad to see racial harassment in this day and age. 2018…!!!!”
