- Olympic silver medallist and GB teammate leave South Africa
- Coach Andy Young denies major bust-up at altitude camp
The Olympic medallist Laura Muir and her GB teammate Jemma Reekie have flown home from South Africa after a shock falling out with their long-term coach Andy Young.
Young, who has helped guide Muir to 11 major medals – including a 1500m silver at Tokyo 2020 – in their 12 years together, denied reports of a major bust-up when asked by the Guardian. But he did hint that there had been disagreements over his behaviour at a recent warm-weather training camp in Potchefstroom.
