Gold medallist will treasure the memories
The runner, who won 2 gold medals in the London 2012 Olympic Games, has sparked a trend amongst celebs for copying his signature Mobot pose, but one of the most memorable for the athlete has been Russell’s interpretation.
As soon as I’d finished doing the media, it was time for the closing ceremony, which I was part of,’ says Mo, 29.
This provided the most surreal moment of all – Russell Brand doing the Mobot. I couldn’t believe it – so funny.
I had no idea he’d be doing it live in front of the nation. Seeing him and Usain Bolt doing the Mobot are great moments which will stick in my head for ever.
[It was also] hilarious to see Cheryl Cole adding herself to the list of Moboteers.’
Now that the Games are over, Mo is looking forward to spending a bit of time with his pregnant wife Tania and daughter Rhianna.
The proud dad has revealed that his 2 medals were in honour of 2 special new people in his life.
Tania is expecting twin girls now and I dedicated my double win to them,’ Mo tells The Sun.
They can have a medal each.’
