Farah's machis-Mo is Haile entertaining.

Byline: ANDY DUNN Britain's best sports writer

THE embryonic sporting year will have to go some to come up with a tale as bizarre as the one involving Mo Farah and Haile Gebrselassie.

Farah (right, top) reckons he had a watch, nearly three grand in cash, and two phones stolen from his room in a hotel owned by Gebrselassie in Addis Ababa.

Among Gebrselassie's spectacular counter-claims is the allegation that Farah 'punched' and 'kicked' a husband and wife in the resort's gym and, when it came to settling a discounted bill, did a runner. So to speak.

The matter is heading in the legal direction and, hopefully, they will look into claims that Farah sent Gebrselassie (right) a text that was signed off by 'Sir Mo.' Now if that part of this jaw-dropping yarn is true, it really is unforgivable.
