Farah and his family have been based in the United States for the last six years and his family are there currently while he trains in Ethiopia.

An executive order issued by President Trump banning individuals born in certain countries from entering the States has cast doubt over whether Farah – a British citizen who was born in Somalia – will be able to rejoin his family at the end of the training camp.

The 33-year-old athlete was knighted in the New Year Honours List for his achievements on the track, which include winning the 5,000 metres and 10,000m double at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games.

Farah is understood to be trying to establish what effect the ban will have on him as a matter of urgency.
