Sir Mo Farah reveals he was trafficked to the UK as a child
According to thuis BBC story, Hussein Abdi Kahin - now Sir Mo Farrah - was 9 when he was flown from the Republic of Djibouti to the UK - ostensibly to live with his relatives - and then made him do housework and look after her children.
Mo didn't attend school until he was 12, and then it was athletics he enjoyed the most and a teacher who organised a foster family for him.
Mo Farah has won numerous athletics awards and was knighted in 2017.
