Mo Farah can enjoy another double celebration after his wife Tania gave birth to twin girls on Friday.
The double gold medallist, who was present at the birth, described the news as “very exciting.” However, Mo has his sights set firmly on his next race.
Currently in Birmingham preparing for the Aviva Birmingham Grand Prix, the athlete told Sky News he would not remain at this wife’s bedside, “No, no, no. I’ve got a race tomorrow, haven’t I?”
A heavily pregnant Tania, along with her daughter Rihanna, were spotted cheering her husband on as he took gold in the 5,000m and 10,000m at the London Olympic Games earlier in the summer.
“My wife has been holding on so long and it’s great that she held on this long and didn’t give birth on the track… I’m very proud. To have three kids in the family is going to be exciting.”
Mo dedicated his victories to his then unborn daughters and although currently undecided on names plans on getting their names inscribed onto the medals.
“I’m actually going to get their names on it, once we’ve figured something out with the medals – one on each. And then whatever one was born first gets the 10,000m and the other gets the 5,000m one.”
Farah hopes to be celebrating another victory tomorrow as he targets Steve Ovett’s two-mile outdoor record.
