MO Farah has picked up a strong fan base in a Camden school ahead of his Olympic challenge this summer. Pupils at South Camden Community School have made a mosaic of the Somali-born British Athlete with the help of artist Sally Kendall (pictured).Farah, who moved to the UK from Mogadishu when he was eight years old, is a firm favourite at the school where many of the children are Somali. Two of the boys who worked on the mosaic, Zakaria and Abdirahman Farah, only arrived in the UK this year. The students, who sent a shot of their work to Farah, have received signed pictures of the long-distance runner and he promised to visit the school once the Olympics are over. Everyone’s hoping he wins a gold medal for Great Britain!
