Mo FarahThe 10,000m World Champion Mo Farah has said that one needed to play for Arsenal to be a legend, and was pleased to be congratulated on Twitter by Gunners player Mikel Arteta to have won.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal earned their ''Invincibles'' tag for going unbeaten through the 2003-04 league season and should Farah retain the 5,000m on Friday, he surely merits the same.

It is this down-to-earth attitude, which explains why Farah continues to improve and why he has even the best of the rest running scare, the report said.

Farah once also said that he wanted to become Arsenal's fitness coach once he retires from the track.
