British Athletics are under investigation following an report by the BBC in which athletics staff did not record an infusion of a controversial supplement on Sir Mo Farah. 

The infusion was of the legal supplement L-carnitine which was given to Farah before a race in 2014. 

The infusion is being looked at by the US-Anti doping agency to see if any rules were broken. 

UKA medics may have failed to centrally log the infusion, including the amounts to the doping authorities. 

A spokesperson for Farah said the infusion was well below the 50ml limit permitted by WADA. 

Farah's coach Alberto Salazaar has been under investigation by the US and UK anti-doping agencies since 2015. It is alleged the infusion was carried out by medics under his instruction. 

The report comes less than two weeks after Sir Mo Farah released a statement stating that he was a clean athlete who has never broken any rules following a leaked report by the US anti-doping agency that suggested Salazaar may have broken anti-doping rules to improve the performance of some of the athletes he coaches.
