Britain's reigning double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah will open his Diamond League season in Qatar.

The 32-year-old will compete in the 3,000m in the capital Doha on 15 May - the first leg of the 14-series event.

Farah, who has never raced in Doha, said: "I've heard so many great things about the track, the crowd and the competition in Doha.

"There are always very strong fields in the distances so this will be a great early season test on the track for me."

Farah, who won the 5,000 and 10,000 metres double at the 2012 London Olympics, and followed up that with a World double in 2013, will compete against leading rivals from Ethiopia and Kenya.

He will defend his current world titles in both events in August in China.
