Sir Mo Farah has criticised the degree of attention given to his relationship with coach Alberto Salazar and has announced he wants to be known as "Mohamed" after stating "Mo is done".
The 34-year-old claimed a silver medal in his last track championship race in London, finishing behind Ethiopia's Muktar Edris in the 5,000 metres on Saturday night.
Farah is now switching his focus to road racing and wants it to be a fresh start, with the four-time world champion ditching "Mo" to become known as "Mohamed".
"My road name is Mohamed," Farah said. "I just feel like Mo is done. I need to forget about what I've achieved and what I've done."
His coach Salazar has been a hot topic throughout these World Championships despite not attending and he is currently being investigated by the US Anti-Doping Agency.
Farah joined Salazar's Nike Oregon Project in 2011 and the pair have enjoyed huge success together, with the British star winning four Olympic gold medals and six world titles - including his 10,000m crown last week.
Their success has not come without scrutiny and Farah -- who will retire from the track at the end of the month to focus on road racing -- feels it is unfair.
He said: "It's like a broken record, repeating myself, if I've crossed the line, if Alberto's crossed the line...why bring it up year after year, making it into headlines? I've achieved what I have achieved -- you're trying to destroy it.
"You have to educate the right people to say what's fair. So many times, you guys have been unfair to me. I know that. But say it how it is.
"I want you to write the truth about what's out there and educate people out there. But be honest with them.
"History doesn't lie. What I achieved over the years, people are proud of me. You can write what you like. The fact is I've achieved what I have from hard work. Putting my balls on the line, year after year and delivering for my country.
"There's nothing else to be said. History doesn't lie. I've achieved what I have through hard work and dedication, year after year. Sometimes I find it bizarre how certain people write certain things to suit how they want to sell the story."
Farah also dismissed any significance over Salazar's absence and is still unsure over if the pair will continue together when he switches to the road.
He said: "I haven't thought that far ahead. I've a few races left, Then I'll take a nice break. And see how it goes.
"How many races has he been to this year for me or last year? He hasn't been to any races. For the last three or four years I have been pretty much by myself and it didn't make much difference really -- I knew what I needed to do."
