Double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah has pulled out of this weekend's Diamond League event in Glasgow because of illness.

The 31-year-old was admitted to hospital in the USA with abdominal pains last week.

Farah, who was due to race over two miles at Hampden Park, is having further tests in the UK this week.

However, he remains confident of being fit enough to compete at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games later this month.

"Sorry to everyone in Scotland but I won't be able to make it there this week," Farah said in a statement.

"I hope to resume training in the next few days and aim to run in the London Anniversary Games on 20 July and then the Commonwealth Games the following week."

Farah confirmed in June he would compete for England in both the 5,000m and 10,000m at Glasgow 2014.
