Mohamed Farah shows off his Knighthood today at Buckingham Palace.

The four time Olympic champion Sir Mo Farah has officially received his knighthood from the Queen.

Despite all the allegations about his performance, hardwork and abuse he has received, Farah now 34 years old accompanied by his wife attended Buckingham Palace to receive the award.




"Over the years you dream of becoming something or doing something in your career, to take it to the highest level and become an Olympic champion - that was always the dream," Sir Mo said.

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

After being honour by the Queen, he said she told him he has been "going too long" and asked him if he has retired.

"I said 'no, I am going to run the London Marathon - I want to go into roads'. She said that's marvellous," Sir Mo said.

After coming second in the 5000m at The London 2017 world Championships Farah has recently retired from track and field to take up road running.
