Athletics: Farah temporarily sets aside athletics for popular television show
14.16 p.m.: British athlete Mo Farah puts his athletic career on the back. The 37-year-old multi-time Olympic and world long-distance champion is taking part in a popular British TV reality programme with nine other celebrities. Farah reportedly earns a sloppy 330,000 euros with it.
Farah improved the world record in Brussels in September. He ran at the King Baudouin Stadium to a distance of 21 kilometers and 330 meters. Born Somali holds two Olympic titles in the 5000 meters and two in the 10,000 meters. He also won three world titles in both 5000 and 10,000 metres.
The athlete announced earlier at the Tokyo Games next summer to aim for new Olympic gold at the 10,000 meters, but his participation in the physically and mentally heavy TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Lord! ‘ raises the question of how serious that plan is.
The program starts on 15 November and the recordings are not as usual in the jungle of Australia, but in a castle in Wales because of the coronapandemic. “I want to challenge myself and see how far I get, that’s the thought behind my participation,” says Farah. “Many people associate me with running and winning and nothing else, but I‘d like to surprise them.”
Football: Trainer Arteta furious after ‘malperformance‘ Arsenal
13.22 hrs: Trainer Mikel Arteta of the English football club Arsenal did not want to know anything about excuses after the defeat against Aston Villa (0-3). “There are no excuses for large teams. They can’t afford it. So neither do we”, grumbled the Spanish manager of the ‘Gunners’.
Arsenal already collected the fourth defeat in eight league matches at its own Emirates stadium. The team of Arteta lost to Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City. Against Aston Villa Arsenal went down hard.
“ We expect to win every match, that must be the standard,” said Arteta, who was appointed to succeed his compatriot Unai Emery at the end of last year and won the FA Cup and the Community Shield with Arsenal. “So if someone thinks that winning one or two games in a row is enough, he is completely wrong. There‘s no way to accept that. I’m not taking that attitude. The club doesn‘t deserve that either.”
Arteta didn’t have a good word left for his team‘s performance against Aston Villa. “For the first time since I’ve been here, I feel like we‘ve really performed below our level. That is unacceptable. I would like to play another game right now to get this out of our system. I wonder how the players react, if they dare to look in the mirror. We can do much better than we have shown here.”
Football: Infected coach Mancini evokes fresh forces at Italy

The tournament in the London O2-Arena with the best eight players of this year will take place from 15 to 22 November.
