Mo Farah: “My name is Hussein Kahin and I entered the UK illegally” | Athletics

Mo Farah is one of the great champions in athletics history. Thanks to his explosive acceleration, Farah won four Olympic titles and six world titles in the long-distance track events. The world admired his achievements also for the story of his difficult start to life as a refugee from Somalia, which led to the life of a great champion representing the country that welcomed him, the United Kingdom. But the story of this beginning, as he tells it in a documentary that will be shown by the BBC this Wednesday, was not quite like that. It was just as, or more difficult, than the version he always told.
