A furious Mo Farah took to Twitter today after his wife was involved in an alleged hit-and-run crash.
His wife Tania, a mum-of-three including twins born last year, was shaken after a driver ploughed into her car near their family home in Oregon in the US.

Farah later wrote: "Wife is ok..!! Police called and said they arrested the driver..!! Happy days."
