Mo Farah is asked by US presenter LaTonya Norton if he has run before after New Orleans half marathon – VIDEO

VIDEO: Have you run before, Mo US TV presenter asks Olympic hero Farah if New Orleans half marathon was his debut

Olympic champion over 5,000 metres and 10,000m, asked her to repeat the question and then answered tactfully: ‘It’s not my first time. I have done a half marathon before but it’s my first time in New Orleans.’

Sunday’s race was Farah’s second outing over 13.1 miles following his debut in New York in 2011. The Briton will run half the Virgin London Marathon in April and then attempt his first race over 26.2 miles in the capital next year.
