Sal' refutes allegations


NIKE has stressed that Mo Farah's coach Alberto Salazar refutes the doping allegations made against him in a BBC investigation.

Salazar, head coach at the prestigious Nike Oregon Project, was accused of violating anti-doping rules through the use of banned steroids such as testosterone and unethical practices.

"We take the allegations very seriously as Nike does not condone the use of performance enhancing drugs in any manner," said the Nike statement.
