how to run a tf.test.TestCase from jupyter notebook – UnrecognizedFlagError: Unknown command line flag ‘f’

My test case runs fine when run from the command line with: py foo_test.py (please see below).

When i run the following notebook:

from __future__ import absolute_import, division, print_function, unicode_literals
import tensorflow as tf
import tensorflow_datasets as tfds
from importlib import reload
from tensorflow.python.framework import test_util
import foo_test
foo_test=reload(foo_test)
foo_test.main()

i get:

in: foo_test.py::main()

Edit1: Trying DorElias' suggestion, I get:

This code (foo_test.py) seems to work:
