Mo Farah reveals how his life’s changed

Mo Farah has become one of the most famous men in the UK after his incredible double victory at London 2012 in the 5,000 and 10,000m.

His come-from-behind victory on super Saturday’ (with heavily pregnant wife Tania, 26, in the crowd watching) will go down as one of the most iconic Olympic moments ever.

Mo, 29 – who was born in Somalia but moved to the UK when he was eight – has also made the Mobot an iconic gesture.

‘It’s gone crazy!’ Mo tells Now’s Dan Wootton. ‘My site crashed the night I won my second gold.

‘There’s been a lot of change and I’m a lot busier.

‘But I try to keep my feet on the ground and stay honest to those around me.’

Mo has become an unlikely sex symbol, too…

‘There’s a lot more interest from the ladies now,’ he admits.

‘It’d be amazing to be in a club and see all the women doing the Mobot!

‘I get mobbed everywhere I go.

‘No one’s horrible, but it does make it harder to live life.

‘Remember, this was something that started for me just as a hobby and now I’ve become this sort of hero.’
