Twin Ambitions: My Autobiography
World champion runner Mohamed 'Mo' Farah came to Britain at the age of eight, having been separated from his family and able to speak only a few words of English. At secondary school a teacher spotted his running talent and encouraged him to join a local athletics club, and he soon turned professional and began to smash British and European records, before taking gold in the 10,000 metres and 5,000 metres at the 2012 London Olympics. Here the ambitious athlete tells his story, from growing up in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa to his teenage years in south-west London and his subsequent journey to becoming the star of Britain's greatest ever night of Olympic glory.
