A former sports minister has said that the decision to award Mo Farah a CBE is wrong, arguing that he deserves a higher accolade.
Former sports minister Gerry Sutcliffe told the Sun newspaper:
Mo’s a national hero. I think it’s a mistake if Wiggins and Ainslie are honoured like this and Mo isn’t.
Mo’s a double gold-medal winner and you look at his performances over a period of time and he’s equal with those two in terms of performance and dedication.
Given what a knighthood for Mo would have done to inspire athletes all over the UK, you have to ask what’s going on.
