London 2012 hero Mo Farah was joined by other Olympic champions at a fundraising event for his charity in London tonight.
Olympic hero Mo Farah has revealed he was driven to win double gold so his newly-born twins would have one each.
Double Olympic champion Mo Farah has told ITV News he 'feels great' following the birth of his twin daughters.
Double Olympic champion Mo Farah has promised he will run the full London Marathon next year after completing 13.1 miles today.
He told the BBC: "It was incredible. The atmosphere is great.
"My aim was just to learn a lot here. Next year, I'm going to come out and do the full marathon."
Mo Farah revealed his preparation for today's London Marathon did not go to plan after the London 2012 double champion overslept.
The 30-year-old athlete, who plans to complete half of today's race, told the BBC he was running late: "Radio 5, gotta go. Gotta run, run, run, run."
Asked whether he had warmed up yet, Farah replied: "Not yet. I'm late. I woke up late. I'm going to miss the bus."
The Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m champion added: "It should be good weather as well, so I'm quite excited."
Double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah said he is comfortable with the security surrounding the London Marathon following the blasts in Boston.
Farah, who is set to run a half marathon this weekend, said, "For me, this is home, this is a great city ... and for what we did at the London Olympics, you shouldn't be worried at all".
When asked about the Boston Marathon bombings, Farah said, "You don't want see anything like that in this sport ... All my support goes to the people that got hurt and their families".:
Olympic medalist Mo Farah has called on fans to stop "being nasty" to an American TV presenter who asked whether he had ever run before during an interview.
The runner was interviewed on TV station WDSU after winning the New Orleans Half Marathon, but the presenter failed to recognise him as an Olympic runner.
Just wanna say to everyone being nasty to LaTonya Norton please stop!! She made a mistake like we all do!! She didn't mean anything by it!From @Mo_Farah on Twitter:
A news anchor on US TV station WDSU failed to recognise double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah after he won the New Orleans half-marathon, asking him, "Haven't you run before?
Farah appeared to think he had misheard the question as he paused before saying, "sorry?".
LaTonya Norton then continued, "This isn't your first time?", which prompted the athlete to smile as he said: "No, no it's not my first time".
Double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah and his wife Tania have criticised the Government over school sport funding cuts and called on the coalition to protect the legacy of the Games.
Mrs Farah, who is helping her husband set up the Mo Farah Foundation, said the cuts, six months after London 2012, were a "huge shame" and "counterproductive".
She criticised cuts to sport at grassroots levels, and said more should be done for sport in state schools, particularly at primary level.
Speaking to the Observer, Mrs Farah said: "Having both come from a school where PE at grassroots level was widely accessible, taught and encouraged, Mo and I are acutely aware of the impact such a positive system can have on the younger generation.
"It was this particular system, along with the 'eye for talent' and useful knowledge from teachers such as Alan Watkinson (Mo Farah's former coach) that opened up the path of success for Mo.
"It is therefore a huge shame that six months on from the Olympics, which inspired the next generation of potential Olympic champions, there are to be budget cuts in primary PE and school sports partnerships."
Mo Farah's application for a US residency visa was held up when authorities considered him a "terrorist threat", the Sun newspaper reports.
Farah, who revealed he was questioned on suspicion of being a terrorist when he went to the USA this Christmas, said he also faced problems when trying to secure a residency permit due to his Somali origin.
“We were in Portland on a tourist visa so had to leave and re-enter the country as a resident. Nike obviously signed it all off and we thought it was going to be straightforward," said Farah.
“But when we were there we got a letter telling us we’re under investigation as a terrorist threat and we would have to stay away for 90 days."
Farah said only an intervention from his coach Alberto Salazar, who knew someone in the FBI, "got it sorted".
Mo Farah was quizzed by US customs on suspicion of being a terrorist, reports the Sun newspaper.
The athlete was taken for questioning after border guards saw he was born in Somalia.
Farah told the Sun: “I couldn’t believe it. Because of my Somali origin I get detained every time I come through US Customs. This time I even got my medals out to show who I am, but they wouldn’t have it.”
