The 34-year-old four-time gold medallist has also revealed how he is sick of having to defend himself ahead of next month’s World Championships
MO FARAH shrugged off the latest questions over doping to win his final race before he defends his two world titles back at the Olympic Stadium next month.
Farah clocked 7:35.15 to win the 3,000m at the Anniversary Games – well outside the British record of 7:32.62 he set in Birmingham last year.
But he said: “Everything is going alright. I’m ticking boxes. Grafting. The usual. The last five years has been the same routine.”
He has now never lost at race at the Olympic Stadium – the scene of his biggest moment at London 2012 – and he is determined to keep that record when he competes over the 10,000m and 5,000m titles back at the venue in less than a month.
They will be the final track races of his career before he steps up to the marathon later this year.
He said: This (stadium) is home. This is where my life has changed. This is where I made my name. This is where it went from normal to ‘I’m Mo’ overnight.
“When anyone asks ‘what memories do you have of London? – it’s not about Big Ben. Meeting The Queen obviously was a special thing in my life but second is this track.”

Chelsea to make £70m bid for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata this week after missing out on Romelu Lukaku
The double-double Olympic distance champion was one of a number of athletes flagged up on a suspicious list after a test in November 2015, according to documents made public by the Russian hacking group Fancy Bears last week.
A later document from April 2016 then put the British star, who plans to step up to the marathon event after London 2017, in the clear.
International athletics chief Seb Coe was also forced to apologise for the leak.
But Farah, whose controversial coach Alberto Salazar is still being investigated by USA anti-doping chiefs, said: “I’m sick of repeating myself.”
“I love what I do and I will never ever fail a drugs test. I work hard at what I do.
