Top News Uk:Mo Farah’s knife attack brother deported and left to rot 4,000 miles from home

Ahmed-Farah has now been deported back to Somalia

Mo Farah’s brother hasn’t seen his family in years

The disgraced brother of athletics legend Sir Mo Farah has ended up homeless and penniless after being deported to Somalia. Ahmed Farah, 30, was sent to his birthplace by British authorities after he was freed from jail for a knife raid.

He had served a four-and-a-half year’s sentence and was on the Home Office’s radar for two years before being booted out. Now, while Mo, 36, has a £4million fortune and a hoard of Olympic and World Championship gold medals to his name, Ahmed is scratching around trying to make a living in the fourth poorest country on Earth. Conflict continues to haunt the war-torn nation while floods and famine pose a hellish new threat.

Ahmed has insisted he does not want sympathy, but a chance to show he has reformed. Sources reported Ahmed as saying: “I made a huge mistake, but why should I be double punished for something I’ve done? “I’m 4,000 miles from my family. I haven’t seen my family in three years. My mum, my brother, my blood, People that mean things to me.”

 “I feel like I failed. I’ve had a lot of great opportunities in life. Having seen some of these with no opportunities it makes you feel ungrateful, I just want to try and level myself and humble myself and really put myself in their shoes and forget about my past and try and crack on. Mentally I’m tough. I don’t intend to fail again. I feel like I’ve failed a lot, I’m going to use this as a platform to propel myself to greater things. I never wanted to be known as ‘so and so’s brother’. I’m my own person”.
