She is not hurt and the drunk driver is arrested.

Double-Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah fired off an angry message on Twitter yesterday.

His wife Tania was driving her car near the family’s home in Oregon when a driver smashed into her BMW. Tania was not hurt in the incident.

“Drunk driver smashed in back of my wife’s car..!! And then run off..!! Wish I was there to chase them..!!!” Farah Tweeted.

Farah’s Tweet received numerous responses, including one from retired Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington — a Briton who won two gold medals in Beijing and two bronze in London.

Farah later added: “Wife is ok..!! Police called and said they arrested the driver..!! Happy days.”

It’s not known if any of the Farahs three children were in the car.

The 30-year-old British citizen currently trains under the guidance of former Boston and New York City Marathon champion Alberto Salazar. Farah will run half of the London Marathon on April 21.

Next year, Farah expects to move up to the 26.2-mile distance in the hopes of competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
