Haile's to return; sport ROUND-UP.
The veteran Ethiopian tearfully announced his intention to retire after pulling out of the ING New York Marathon with 10 miles remaining due to a knee injury earlier this month.
Gebrselassie said: "First I want to thank you for all your support and great responses. After a few days in the countryside I could take some decisions.
"Running is in my blood and I decided to continue competing. My announcement in New York was my first reaction after a disappointing race. When my knee is better again I will start focusing on my next race. Thank you again for all your support."
