Mo to hit the marathon with Paula's help?

Farah, 27, won Britain's first gold medal of the European Indoor Championships in Paris at the weekend, sucessfully defending the 3,000m title he won two years ago.

He moves to America this week to work with new coach Alberto Salazar, a former marathon runner himself, in his bid for London 2012 glory.

But he has revealed he would like to run the London Marathon - where Radcliffe set her world mark - in 2013.

Farah, who has already spent time Radcliffe's high-altitude training camp in the French Pyrenees, was mentored by her as a youngster. She even helped him get his driving licence so he could travel to training and attended his wedding last year.
