Review

This is a homecoming of sorts for Mo Farah, who returns to compete in the UK for the second time this year after receiving his knighthood. It’s also the first time we will see him on home soil after his fierce statement against President Trump’s travel ban against certain Muslim-majority countries, a policy that he said came from “a place of ignorance and prejudice”. For such a careful, controversy-shy star, it was an extraordinary riposte.

“I was welcomed into Britain from Somalia at eight years old and given the chance to succeed and realise my dreams,” he continued. Britain can be a place where incredible talent blossoms – but only if we’re ready to offer a welcome.

Summary

Gabby Logan presents coverage of the prestigious meeting from the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, where Mo Farah is expected to be among the star attractions. This is widely regarded as a key event for the athletes to prepare for the forthcoming season, with Great Britain strongly represented by the likes Laura Muir, Dina Asher-Smith, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Robbie Grabarz and Holly Bradshaw. With commentary by Steve Cram, Andrew Cotter and Steve Backley, analysis from Colin Jackson, Denise Lewis and Paula Radcliffe.
