Mo Farah reveals how his life’s changed
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.’
