Published: Updated:

Four-time world champion Mo Farah bids farewell to “Mo” as he starts a new chapter in road racing and introduces his new-self Mohamed Farah, The Guardian reported Monday.

Quoting Farah, the article said: “My road name is Mohamed. I just feel like Mo is done. I need to forget about what I’ve achieved and what I’ve done.”

According to the newspaper, the decision comes after unsupported allegations against his coach Alberto Salazar and doubts about how Farah arrived to his success among other doping claims.
