Following his child trafficking story that revealed his true identity, four-time Olympic gold medallist, Mo Farah appears to be enjoying massive public sympathy so much so that the Home office assured him that no action will be taken against him for obtaining a British passport with a false identity.
However, the feeling of apprehension may have returned for the 39-year-old whose birth name is Hussein Abdi Kahin when the Metropolitan Police said it has started an investigation into Sir Mo Farah’s revelation that he was trafficked to the UK illegally under the name of another child.
The Met said: “We are aware of reports in the media concerning Sir Mo Farah. No reports have been made to the MPS [Metropolitan Police Service] at this time.”
Specialist officers have opened an investigation and are “assessing the available information”, the force said.
The father of four opened up in a BBC documentary saying “the truth is I’m not who you think I am” as he spoke of the traumatic events of his childhood after leaving war-torn Somaliland in east Africa.
