Double Olympic gold-winning track star Mo Farah is to be turned into a waxwork by Madame Tussauds.

The attraction is preparing a figure of the runner in his "mo-bit" pose, which will be placed alongside other sporting stars such as sprinter Usain Bolt, diver Tom Daley and heptathlete Jessica Ennis.

He said: "I saw Usain Bolt's wax figure at the Anniversary Games last year and couldn't believe how brilliant it was. I said then that I'd love one of my own and I'm so excited that it's now really happening."
