Mo Farah brought us more drama on consecutive Saturday nights on the BBC than we’ve seen in years. Yes a lot of people like and watch Strictly Come Dancing religiously and Doctor Who has a huge fan base as does Casualty but live sport is always more dramatic and the Olympics caught the imagination of the country – even those that don’t like sport and Mo Farah was arguably the face of the games for GB athletes.
Well Mo Farah set up the Mo Farah Foundation that helps provide life saving aid in East Africa. His success on the track has helped give his foundation a much better profile and on this front has led to him recording a charity single which you can view below and follow the instructions to download it from the foundations website.
The ‘Mobot’ was suggested by arguably one of the other faces of the Olympic Games – although in a very different capacity – Clare Balding. The Presenter who fronted the swimming for the BBC at London 2012 came up with the idea of the Mobot on the Sky One show ‘A League Of Their Own’ and it more than stuck.
The video for the single shows many famous faces doing the Mobot as well as Mo’s various stretches as part of his warm-up routine. Boris Johnson is pretty cool in it but Tom Daley’s performance on top of the diving board is also pretty darn cool.
Look lets be honest. The single is awful but it is a bit of fun and for a good cause so if you want a giggle watch the video and give something to the Mo Farah Foundation.
