- Farah makes plea as security ramped up for Sunday’s race
- ‘Maybe there will be tears. I’m coming to the end of my career’
Mo Farah has issued a personal plea to activists not to disrupt his last major race after confirming he will wind his career down after Sunday’s London Marathon.
Security has been ramped up along the 26.2-mile course after protests at the Grand National and World Snooker Championship, but the 40-year-old wants environmental groups such as Just Stop Oil to remember the money the event generates for good causes before deciding on yet more direct action.
