It was a Super Saturday night for almost everyone in the UK as they stayed up well into the early hours to watch Mo Farah fall flat on his face before claiming Olympic gold in the men’s 10,000m at Rio 2016.
The British athlete’s third campaign for gold had everyone very excited, with many opting to ditch their beds and camp out on the sofa instead.

Needless to say, when Mo tripped and fell there was widespread anguish throughout the land.
Mo Farah just gave me a mini heart attack with that fall ????

It sure was nice of him to give the other athletes a chance though, eh?
