Top Mo-ment for Farah

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

SIR Mo Farah proudly poses in top hat and suit for wife Ta­nia af­ter re­ceiv­ing his knight­hood from the Queen.

The four-time Olympic cham­pion, 34, was hon­oured yes­ter­day for his ser­vices to ath­let­ics.

Sir Mo said: “As an eight-year-old com­ing from So­ma­lia and not speak­ing a word of English, to be recog­nised by your coun­try is in­cred­i­ble.” But the star, who is mov­ing to marathons, did not teach the Queen his Mo-bot pose. He said it was “far too rude” for Buck­ing­ham Palace. Delia Smith, 76, was made Order of the Com­pan­ions of Hon­our, for cook­ery – which she said is now “poncy”, adding: “If I get one more plate with six dots of sauce on it I’ll go mad.”
