David Rudisha, Moh Farah ‘arrested’ in Britain


Olympic gold medallists David Rudisha and Moh Farah were ‘arrested’ by police in Newcastle.

In a Facebook post, the Northumbria police department wrote:

We were called to central Newcastle today after reports of a speeding object on the Quayside.

Our officers attended and found two men claiming that they were Olympic gold medallists and had set off our speed cameras in a practice jog.

They kept telling us to Google Mo Farah and David Rudisha but we weren’t having any of it so decided they needed to pay a visit to custody.

Due to a lack of evidence we had to release them without charge after a brief chat in the back of our police car.

Turns out they were telling the truth after all! Good luck tomorrow Mo in the #GreatNorthRun and well done to David in the #CityGames2016!

The pair was doing last-minute practice for the Great North Run which is currently underway.
