Mo Farah told ITV News that he would love to be called 'Sir Mo'. It comes after David Cameron said he would "warmly welcome" a recommendation for him to be knighted.
Mo Farah has sacrificed spending time with his family to concentrate on training. At one point he was spending so much time away, that one of his daughters didn't even recognise him.
Farah said: "She didn't recognise me. Now she's getting to know me a bit better. I've been giving her sweets and chocolate, kind of bribing her a bit!"
ITV News has spoken exclusively to Britain's most successful long distance runner, Mo Farah after his incredible year. The Londoner made history by becoming the first ever Briton to win the long distance double at both last year's Olympics and the World Championships last month.
Mo Farah described how his remarkable career was about to step up a level, as he sets his sights on competing in the London Marathon next year. Speaking to Rags Martel, he said:
"I've never run the marathon, I've run a couple of half marathons, it's quite a long way. I'm really looking forward to it. I've watched it before, some great athletes have won it. It'll be nice to continue that and be good at the marathon - but I don't know, we'll find out."
