Everything came in the day when Mo Farah held a press conference earlier in the week for Sunday's London Marathon. Suddenly began to the uk in the world cup, tell me how he had been robbed in a hotel room in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, and that he was not pleased with how the hotelier – löpningsikonen Haile Gebrselassie – helped him.
" Someone in the front desk gave my key to someone who went into my room and opened my suitcase. It was locked with a code, told Farah according to the AP, and continued:
" This one took my two cell phones, my money (26.000 crowns in four different currencies) and a watch given to me by my wife. It is not possible to buy for money.

The Guardian beats the now 46-year-old Haile Gebrselassie back and accuses Mo Farah for having assaulted an ethiopian couple in the gym in the hotel.

Now it seems that the former friends and långdistansstjärnornas the next meeting will be in a courtroom. Mo Farah requires compensation for the stolen out of his room and Gebrselassie wants to clear his name.
And the 47-year-old has no intention of giving in.
