Royal dream comes true for Sir Mo

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

SIR Mo Farah has re­ceived his knight­hood from the Queen, de­scrib­ing the mo­ment as “in­cred­i­ble” and some­thing he never imag­ined would hap­pen.

The four-time Olympic cham­pion was hon­oured at an in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony at Buck­ing­ham Palace for his ser­vices to ath­let­ics.

Sir Mo, who called time on his track ca­reer at the end of the sum­mer, will be mov­ing back to London from the United States to con­cen­trate on run­ning road marathons.

“As an eight-year-old com­ing from So­ma­lia and not speak­ing a word of English, to be recog­nised by your coun­try, it is in­cred­i­ble,” he said.
