The Real Mo Farah


The Real Mo Farah tells the astonishing story of how the British-Somali athlete was trafficked to the UK as the age of nine.

In the UK, Mo Farah worked as a domestic servant. After telling his PE teacher about his plight, he went into foster care. School staff helped the boy gain British citizenship so that he could compete in international running events.

Mo Farah has won 4 Olympic gold medals. He received an Order of the British Empire, a CBE in 2013 and another, a knighthood, in 2017.
