Mo Farah has been targeted with racist messages after posting Merry Christmas on Instagram.

The four-time Olympic gold medallist took to social media to send his festive wishes, complete with a selfie of himself wearing a Santa hat.

Farah is a practising Muslim and was targeted with a number of offensive messages.

“The respect I had for you went way down. Shame bro" one response read.

Earlier this month, the 34-year-old upset the odds to take the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
