Somali born British double Olympics and world distance champion, Mo Farah has been denied entry into the US.

Farah who is based in Oregon has fallen foul of the new tough anti-immigration laws set by US President, Donald Trump with the long distance legend who was Knighted on New Year’s Day lashed out on the decision on Facebook.

“On 1st January this year, Her Majesty The Queen made me a Knight of the Realm. On 27th January, President Donald Trump seems to have made me an alien.

“I am a British citizen who has lived in America for the past six years – working hard, contributing to society, paying my taxes and bringing up our four children in the place they now call home. Now, me and many others like me are being told that we may not be welcome. It’s deeply troubling that I will have to tell my children that Daddy might not be able to come home – to explain why the President has introduced a policy that comes from a place of ignorance and prejudice.
