Some of Sir Mo's best bits

ON TOP OF THE WORLD: Sir Mo does the Mobot whilst standing on a London Eye pod earlier today, marking the end of an era

AS A proudly black British publication, 'The Voice' couldn't have been more pleased when Sir Mo Farah kicked-off the first night of the IAAF World Championships with a winning 10,000m run, which saw him bag another Gold for his collection and of course for the UK.

The 34 year-old east London dad has not failed to impress throughout his record-breaking career since he claimed his first notable title in 2001 at the European Athletics Junior Championship.

After that stunning debut, Mohamed Muktar Jama 'Mo' Farah did more than earn his stripes - he made history and became Britain's very best track athlete of all time, scooping Olympic Gold medals in 2012 and 2016 to name a few. Farah clocked-up ten consecutive global final wins from 2011, before missing the Gold by a hair's breadth in this IAAF World Championships last week.

The Voice await Sir Mo's next move with bated breath.
