On the other hand, it might be difficult to prove links to doping coaches if Buck Palace give Mo a knighthood. Ask Sir Bradley and Sir Dave.

Saville was very well connected to royalty. They knew who they were honouring. Saville was part of something much larger in Uk society, tip of an iceberg. Lots in BBC knew what Saville was up to. Same in hospitals and prisons.

Mo is an Somalian who grew up in Britain. If it looks likes he might lose those medals and he might, change of the guard in the IOC might see Mo samples retested and boom, positives.

Most of us are still waiting for Lord Coe's samples to be retested from '84.

There's a "famous" interview that John Lydon did which was issued on a reissued PiL regarding Saville and what he was up to. Which the BBC didn't air when it was recorded in the late 70's/early 80's. "Nothing I've said is libel"

Yep, that is on youtube. Interview with Janet Street Porter in 1978. It had an effect of making PIL banned from a lot of the BBC.

That definitely would help preventing GB media outing him, but the oul interwebs can generate a lot and Mo has not been as cute ask Brailsford or Wiggins.

Also TeamGB have put themselves firmly up there in Olympics as a force and other EU nations might want to take them down a peg or 2.

The refugee succes story might give him some political protection.

Mo's claims that Jama Aden was a fan who wanted a selfie doesn't wash

https://twitter.com/MoDoorbell/status/768471724442677249

"Farah's autobiography says he was training Kenya with Jama's athletes. Years before the February 2016 Ethiopia pic."

Mo caught Lying. Points to one thing in sport.

Beno.

I think you are living in dreamland if you think anyone is going to retest mo's samples or that any other countries will try to take him down.

The guy is more teflon than John Gotti at the moment.

He's been caught red handed lying about a doping doctor and no one in the Brit press is saying a word.

BTW, where is that poster dolools (or whatever his name is) who said that dibaba deserved to get doping suspicion from British athletes because she worked for Aden but is outraged at the idea that anyone would doubt "mo".

There was that Russian report that he tested posted 3 times and had it swept under the rug. I wonder if the Russian hackers will be on to that one?

Geezus it's priceless.

Some bright spark at SkySports came up with the idea for Mo to hold a Presser on Twitter.

#askfarah

It's priceless, I'm thinking someone at SkySports is probably working on their resume right now.

A knighthood and or OBE is a smart move. If there is a scandal then they can simply strip the recipient even if said recipient has run off with a pension fund and bought a couple of yachts with the stash for example.

As I said on twitter, you would think Boaty McBoatface told everything people need to know about getting public input from the internet.

If they had a form to submit questions that didn't become public, that could be screened. Here it has a life of its own.

Farah watched in near-silence as his wife launched a foul-mouthed tirade against an airline worker because the family were told to wait alongside economy passengers, a shocked eyewitness has revealed.

The Olympic hero’s partner Tania was said to have been furious when the couple and their daughter Rihanna were told they had missed first-class boarding as they made their way back from Rio.

Asked to wait until all passengers from the gate had boarded before they could make their way on to the plane, Mrs Farah, 30, began swearing at the attendant, it is alleged.

Waiting flyers heard the wife of the four-time gold medal winner call the woman, ‘f****** pathetic’, tell her she led a ‘sad little life’ and say she was being ‘disrespectful’ to the family, it is said.

According to the witness, the outburst – in the presence of Farah’s 11-year-old stepdaughter and other young passengers – went on for up to ten minutes as the Delta Air Lines worker failed in her attempts in calming Mrs Farah down. The witness said this only prompted her to add: ‘I demand an apology for the way we have been treated.’

The alleged incident took place just two days after Farah won his second Rio gold in the 5,000m. His family were boarding a 9.53am flight from Atlanta, Georgia, to their home in Portland, Oregon, in the US on August 22.
