Mo Farah

Mo Farah, a four-time Olympic gold medalist, has revealed that he was brought illegally into Britain from Djibouti while posing as another teenager. He did this by using a false identity.

In all candour, I am not the person you have pictured me to be “According to a documentary produced by the BBC titled “The Real Mo Farah,” Farah is currently 39 years old.

Farah, the first track and field athlete from the United Kingdom to win four Olympic gold medals, stated that his children have motivated him to be open and honest about his history. Farah won his gold medals in track and field competitions at the 2008, 2012, and 2016 Olympics.

“The truth of the matter is that I was born Hussein Abdi Kahin in Somaliland, which is located to the north of Somalia,” he said in an interview with the BBC. “The tale goes like this:” “In spite of what I’ve stated in the past, neither of my parents ever lived in the United Kingdom.

“When I was four years old, my father was killed in the Civil War, which resulted in the disintegration of our family. After having my mother taken from me, I was unlawfully brought into the United Kingdom while using the name of another child who was also named Mohamed Farah.

In the video, Farah claims that he thought he was going to live with relatives in Europe and that he remembers passing through a British passport check as Mohamed when he was nine years old after flying with a woman he had never met. Farah also claims that he believed he was going to live with relatives in the United States.

He explained, “I had all the contact information for my relative, but when we arrived at her home, the lady took it from me, tore it up in front of me, and dumped it in the trash, and I knew then that I was in trouble.” “I had all the contact information for my relative, but when we arrived at her home, the lady took it from me, tore it up in front of me, and dumped it in the trash.”

The athlete went back to his childhood home in west London, where he said he had “not amazing recollections” because he was not treated like a member of the family when he was there.

Farah ultimately revealed the truth to his teacher, Alan Watkinson, after moving in with his friend’s mother, who took care of him after he moved in with them. He ended up staying there for a total of seven years.

Watkinson completed and handed in what is known as the “long process” of applying for Farah to be granted British citizenship.” In the year 2000, Farah’s claim to citizenship in the United Kingdom was finally validated.
