Mo Farah in action.

I stopped trusting what I was watching in track and field athletics years ago.

Anyone showing rapid improvement, like Mo Farah, would inevitably be suspected of chemical cheating.

In the case of Allan Wells, suspicions are still surfacing 35 years later.

Whether or not Farah and coach Alberto Salazar have done wrong (and no allegations have been made against the runner), the affair has been badly handled by Farah and GB athletics chiefs.

The sensible step for Farah when Panorama broke the allegations about Salazar would have been to run as scheduled n Birmingham last weekend and keep away from his coach.Instead Farah ran away from those who paid up to £50 a ticket to watch him to meet up with Salazar.
