Speaking about his incredible success, Mo said: "It shows I didn't just fluke it in London. To do it again is incredible. I can't believe it." He continued to tell BBC Sport: "It has been a long journey but if you dream of something, have ambitions and are willing to work hard then you can get your dreams."

Following his success in the 10,000m a day later, Mo opened up to reporters about how he was ready to spend some quality time with his four children; Armani, Aisha, Rihanna and Hussain, following Rio, saying: "It's every athlete's dream, but I can't believe it. I just want to go home now and see my beautiful kids and hang my medals around their necks."
