Sir Mo Farah, aka Hussein Abdi Kahin, was brought to the UK as a child.

Long-distance runner Sir Mo Farah stated that Hussein Abdi Kahin was his first name. He mentioned in his documentary that he was brought to the UK against his will as a child and made to work as a domestic worker. In the documentary, he said, “Most people know me as Mo Farah, but that’s neither my name nor the truth. The Olympic winner told the BBC that he was given the name Mohamed Farah by those who flew him over from Djibouti. He alleges that when he was nine years old, a woman he had never met brought him over from an east African country and had him look after the kids of another family.

The Team GB athlete says, “For years, I just kept blocking everything out. But that’s something you can only do for so long. The distance runner had claimed that he and his parents fled Somalia and came to the UK as refugees. But the reality was different. He ultimately admits that his parents had never been to the UK in a film produced by the BBC and Red Bull Studios that BBC News was able to view.

On the family farm in the breakaway state of Somaliland, his mother and two brothers live. He claims that the woman who brought him to the UK told him that he would be sent to live with family in Europe. Hussein described his response as being “exciting” and explains, “I’d never flown before.

He was told to introduce himself as Mohamed by the woman. Hussein alleges that she was in possession of phony travel documents bearing his image and the name “Mohamed Farah.” According to Sir Mo, he had to do childcare and housework in order to eat and survive.


The lady allegedly threatened him, saying, “Don’t say anything if you ever want to see your family again.” He remembers, “I’d frequently lock myself in the bathroom and cry.” For the first few years, his family forbade him from going to school, but when he was about 12 years old, he enrolled in Year 7 at Feltham Community College. Staff members recognized Sir Mo as a refugee from Somalia.

He arrived at school “unkempt and uncared for,” knew very little English, and was an “emotionally and culturally alienated” boy, according to Sarah Rennie, his former form teacher, who spoke to the BBC. She asserts that the people who identified themselves as his parents did not participate in any parents’ nights. When Sir Mo entered the athletics track, Alan Watkinson, the little boy’s PE teacher, noticed a shift in him. He added that he was saved by running. He said, “The only way I could escape from this [dwelling situation] was to get out and flee.”The woman who took Sir Mo to London was questioned by the BBC but did not respond.
