LONDON, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 10: Gold Medal winner athlete Mo Farah performs a ‘mobot’ during the London 2012 Victory Parade for Team GB and Paralympic GB athletes on September 10, 2012 in London, England.

Double Olympian Medalist Mo Farah has revealed about how he was detained at New York International Airport due to his ethnicity and was almost treated like a Terrorist.

Farah who belongs to Somalia told the Sun, “I couldn’t believe it. Because of my Somali origin, I get detained every time I come through US customs. This time I even got my medals out to show who I am, but they wouldn’t have it.”
