PRIMARY school children got the runaround from Olympic gold medallist Sebastian Coe this week.

Pupils of Hallfield School, Bayswater, met other youngsters taking part in the “Westminster Mile” later this month.

Lord Coe, who won gold in the 1980 and 1984 Olympics, said: “It’s fantastic to see these children so excited about taking part in the Vitality Westminster Mile. The London 2012 Olympic Games aimed to inspire a generation and this event, created in 2013 as an Olympic legacy event, is doing just that.”
