UK Athletics has found no evidence of wrongdoing by Mo Farah in the initial findings of its investigation into allegations of doping against his coach Alberto Salazar.

The governing body also said its investigation had not given it "any reason to question the appropriateness of the input" by the Nike Oregon Project to the double Olympic champion's training regime.

UKA launched a review following allegations broadcast in a BBC Panorama programme in June that Salazar, the head coach at the Nike Oregon Project in Portland, where Farah trains, had violated several anti-doping rules.

Salazar, an 'unpaid consultant' for UKA, has denied all the accusations against him and Farah, who was not accused of any wrongdoing in the BBC documentary, has vowed to stick by his coach unless any allegations are proven.

UKA launched a review into the American's relationship with the governing body and Farah - who will compete in next month's World Championships in Beijing - undertaken by its Performance Oversight Group.
