Mo Farah says that it is "crazy" to suggest that he could finish next year's London Marathon in less than two hours.

Olympic long-distance runner Mo Farah has played down suggestions that he could break the world record in next year's London Marathon.

The time currently stands at two hours, three minutes and 23 seconds, but some have called on the 30-year-old to better that record.

"It's pretty crazy to say that in my first ever marathon I'm going to shave three minutes off," Farah told BBC Breakfast.

The 26.2 mile route is on Farah's agenda for next year.
