London 2012 Olympics: Mo Farah reflects on double gold
Mo Farah admits he enjoyed a breakfast treat after his stunning 5,000m victory at the London 2012 Olympics on Saturday
The morning after achieving an historic second gold medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Mo Farah allowed himself a rare treat for breakfast.
The distance running phenomenon, still basking in the glory of his remarkable 5000m and 10,000m double, chose a croissant as his first meal of the day.
Usually that would be off-limits during his gruelling training regime. And Farah was keen to point out that it wasn’t going to become a habit.
He said: “I’m not letting it go completely but I’ve had a croissant for breakfast and it’s not often I do that. I’m still going to train hard but I’m going to come off the gas a little bit.”
The 29-year-old will need some time too, to simply allow what he has achieved to sink in.
“Crossing the line first is an unbelievable feeling, the best in the world, something you have worked so hard for,” he said.
“To get it right in your home town, with the home crowd making such a difference is amazing.
“It is still sinking in now, and I think it might take some time.”
