I was smuggled into UK as a child; my real name’s Kahin – Mo Farah

Four-time British Olympic champion, Mo Farah, has narrated that he was trafficked to the United Kingdom when he was nine years old.

He also said that his father died in a Somalia civil war when he was four and that he was separated from his mother.

He said he was a Somalian christened Hussein Abdi Kahin, and that he took the identity of another child called Mohamed Farah to travel to Europe.

The 39-year-old phenomenal athlete, Farah, disclosed these in a latest documentary ‘The Real Mo Farah’ published by Metro.

Farah gave a shocking revelation and horrifying childhood experience in the chronicle, stating that the family he stayed with treated him like a slave.

“The truth is I’m not who you think I am. Most people know me as Mo Farah, but it’s not my name or it’s not the reality,” Farah started.

The real story is I was born in Somaliland, north of Somalia, as Hussein Abdi Kahin. Despite what I’ve said in the past, my parents never lived in the UK.

“When I was four my dad was killed in the civil war, as a family we were torn apart.
