Farah may have won gold for Britain, having trained in the USA and Kenya, but he has not forgotten his birthplace.

He retains happy memories of Somalia where he was born in a comfortable house, surrounded by family, some of whom remain there.

Proud of his roots, Farah and Tania set up the Mo Farah Foundation which aims to build 50 wells and to give a month's supply of food to at least 20,000 people, and medical support to 40,000, by the end of the year.

He has also set aside the 250,000 pounds ($389,000) he won in a TV show earlier this year for the project -- and there is more to come.

"On the first of September I'm having a big charity auction for the Mo Farah Foundation," he said on Saturday.
