Farah, a four-time Olympic gold medallist after his 5,000m and 10,000m doubles at London and Rio, even donned a personalised club tracksuit and was all smiles as he battled with Danny Welbeck in a battle for possession.

However, he will have been keen to take care following the striker’s long-awaited comeback from injury.
