The 40 year old four time Olympic Marathon champion confirmed that the today’s race will be his last marathon.
“It won’t be my last race but London will be my last marathon. “It will be quite emotional. Maybe after the race there will be tears,” British record holder Farah said on Thursday.
Farah missed last year’s London marathon due to a hip injury but the British athlete who has been training in Ethiopia now says he is ready for one final marathon race in London.
However Farah says he will still participate in the 5000 and 10000 meters races.
