Mo Farah will race for the first time since doping allegations were made against his coach at next month's Diamond League meeting in Monaco.

Double Olympic champion Farah was due to race in Birmingham earlier this month, but withdrew on the day of the event citing that he was "physically and emotionally drained" in the wake of claims made against Alberto Salazar.

Salazar, who also serves as an "unpaid consultant" for UK Athletics, and one of his athletes Galen Rupp - a silver medallist behind Farah in the 10,000 metres at 2012 Olympic Games in London - were both accused of using doping practices in a BBC Panorama documentary earlier this month.

There has been no suggestion that Farah was involved, but UK Athletics chairman Ed Warner stated that the athlete's data would be investigated.

Farah has now announced his return to track on Twitter, with a photograph showing him in training.

"Good to be out on the track in France, getting ready for my next race in Monaco," Farah wrote. "Focusing on my training!!"
