Sir Mo Farah hints at retirement after 19-second Tokyo Olympics qualification heartbreak


    “It was quite windy, I tried to push and push and push but nine laps out I knew I was on my own,” Farah said. “It’s amazing to have the crowd once more.

    “That’s all you can do as human being, you give it your all and that’s what you have. I’ve had a wonderful career, I’m very lucky to have had the long career I’ve had and I’m very grateful but that’s all I had today.”

    When asked whether the race would be his last on the track, Farah added: “It’s a tough one, it’s a tough one. I’ve always said that if I can’t compete with the best I’m not just going to go there to finish in a final. I want to go there to compete and tonight just shows it wasn’t good enough.”
