But, in fact, he was forced to look after the children and do chores around the flat in Hounslow in London.

After disclosing the truth to his school, Sir Mo went to live with the aunt of the real Mohamed Farah, Kinsi, who had been told he was in the UK because all his family had died.

She said: ‘I tried to find out what is going on with you. The lady, she always makes you do the housework, to have the kids, give them their milk, to change their nappy and all these things.

‘What I know is she didn’t bring you as a human being, to help you, no. If I tell you the truth, this is not your fault. Your name is a gift to you, our gift to you.’

Kinsi revealed that she had gotten back in touch with her nephew Mo and the pair video called him during the documentary to Sir Mo’s surprise.

Speaking on the phone, Sir Mo said: ‘I can’t believe that I’m speaking to you. I carry your name and for many, many years, I carry that with me and I’m proud you know what I have achieved.

‘But as a person I always wonder where’s Mohamed, is he okay, what would life have been like for him?

‘I think about it all the time and in person I just wanted to get in touch and to see how you’re doing.’

What a story!  After disclosing the truth to his school, Sir Mo went to live with the aunt of the real Mohamed Farah, Kinsi, who had been told he was in the UK because all his family had died.

Mo said he wasn’t married or had any children just yet but had seen Sir Mo running on the TV and was an Arsenal football fan.

When Sir Mo asked if he is allowed to come to the UK, Mo, whose country was not disclosed, said: ‘I don’t think so. I would love to come to the UK. I would personally like to meet you.’

Sir Mo added: ‘I will try my best to make that happen. I just want to say one thing to you, thank you so much, I use your name.

‘I came here as a child and I just want to say thank you and it’s been hard, difficult.’

Mo said: ‘It’s okay, you’re still my brother.’

Later in the documentary, Sir Mo said it felt ‘amazing’ and it was a ‘relief’ to speak to his namesake.

I didn’t get the answer that I was looking for, why was I brought over here?

I still don’t know, but most importantly for me today, the answer I got, that relief from Mohamed saying, you’re still my brother and for me, I couldn’t ask for a better thing.

I feel like something has been lifted off my shoulders. But that’s just me. I don’t know how everyone’s gonna see it,’ he said.
