Farah will compete in Glasgow

Double Olympic and world champion runner, Britain's Mo Farah, confirmed he will be fit to take part in this month's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow after recovering from abdominal pains.

The 31-year-old, who is due to represent England in the 5,000 and 10,000 metres events, pulled out of last weekend's Diamond League meeting in Glasgow because of illness.

Just days ago Farah sent a wave of panic through English fans when he said he might not be able to compete in Scotland.

Farah was admitted to hospital in the United States with abdominal pains at the start of the month but after coming through a series of medical tests, he was given the all-clear to resume training.

"Training is going good! Next stop Commonwealth Games," Farah tweeted on Wednesday from his Pyrenean training base in Font Romeu.

Farah is scheduled to race in the London Anniversary Games on Monday.

The Commonwealth Games run from July 23rd to August 3rd.

The 5,000m final is on July 27th and the 10,000m on August 1th.
