Olympic star Mo Farah said he was "blown away" at being made a CBE, but admits that missing out on a top spot in the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year was "difficult to get my head around".
The double gold medallist was rewarded for his Olympic efforts in the New Year Honours list, announced yesterday.
In an interview with The Sun on Sunday, he said: "I'm blown away. I'm honoured.
"For me 2012 is done and it's time to look ahead. But I'll never forget what everyone in Team GB achieved."
