At the European indoor championships in Serbian capital, the 23-year-old Scot sensationally claimed two titles smashing championships records in 1500m (4:02.39) and 3000m (8:35.67).

"We went for the double to see how the legs coped with a lot of rounds in a short period," Muir told the BBC Sports.

After successful European indoors Muir now plans to double at the upcoming world championships in London 2017.

"Hopefully, come London, I'll double up and do the 1500m and the 5K."
