Mo Farah Instagram Lives himself being 'racially harassed' in airport

The four-time Olympic gold medallist broadcast airport security pushing him around a German airport

National hero Sir Mo Farah has accused an airport official of "racial harassment" in a video that shows the Olympic legend being pushed around by security.


The double double Olympic gold medal winner tweeted: "Sad to see racial harassment in this day and age. 2018...!!!!"

In the clip the German official tells Farah to"go to the gate."

The long-distance runner replies: "I'm going to the gate. There's no need to push me," but the man grabs Farah after being repeatedly told "stop pushing me."

Mo then says: "There is no need to grab me. Leave me alone. You're on Instagram live."


A spokesperson for Farah said: “This afternoon, there was an incident at a German airport whilst Mo was travelling back to his training camp in Ethiopia.

"Mo felt that the incident was racially motivated and that he was unfairly treated by the airport security staff.”

Farah is the most successful British track athlete in modern history. He won gold in both the 5,000 and 10,000m in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.
