Olympic champion Mo Farah has admitted he would love to be knighted because it might get him through airports faster.

The British runner, who scored two gold medals at the Rio Olympics four years after winning two in London in 2012, said he was delighted by calls for him to receive a knighthood.

He told this week's 'Hello!' magazine: "It might get me through passport control quicker. There have got to be some perks."

Farah became the first man in 40 years to win gold medals in the 10,000m and 5,000m races at consecutive Olympics.

He pledged his two medals from London 2012 to his twin daughters Aisha and Amani and dedicated his medals from Rio to his eldest daughter Rihanna (11) and son Hussein (10 months) (pictured above).
