ir Mo Farah’s remarkable, inspirational and medal-filled track career has ended in fitting style by being crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2017.
No British athlete has taken track domination quite to the level of Sir Mo.
A four-time Olympic champion, the long-distance runner has made 5,000m and 10,000m races his own for years, securing the double double at London 2012 and Rio 2016.
For many that would be enough to satisfy any career, but not this 34-year-old, delivering his final swansong at the World Championships in the Olympic Stadium – performances to fully justify his title of Sports Personality of the Year.
The big favourite in any race he has competed in, whether for Team GB or British Athletics, no fewer than eight World Championship medals now occupy his mantelpiece.
Six of those have been gold too, the double-double a thing of regularity, standing on the podium twice more with 10,000m gold and 5,000m silver in front of his adoring fans.
