Who is Mo Farah’s secret twin brother?
Mo Farah’s twin brother Hassan grew up with the athlete in their home of Djibouti in Africa. As Mo is 37, Hassan must be the same age – as his twin!
Hassan had fallen ill and stayed in Djibouti with their extended family when Mo left for London with his family at the age of eight.
When Hassan got married in 2003, Mo saved enough for the £500 ticket to Djibouti to attend his brother’s wedding.

Why didn’t Mo see his brother for 12 years?
- Hassan went missing
As flights for Mo and his family were too expensive to be cancelled, the plan was that Hassan would stay with extended family to recover from his illness and join them in the UK at another time.
Mo thought they would only be apart for 2 months – but Hassan and the extended family weren’t there when Mo’s dad went to collect his other son.
After 2 weeks of searching for Hassan with no luck, he went back to the UK to work and provide for his family.
It was later revealed that Hassan and their extended family had moved to Somaliland after’s Mo’s mum went searching for them.
Mo and his brother were then reunited at his wedding in 2003.
