According to Now! Mo was particularly impressed with Russell's recreation saying:

"As soon as I'd finished doing the media, it was time for the closing ceremony, which I was part of,"

"This provided the most surreal moment of all - Russell Brand doing the Mobot. I couldn't believe it - so funny.  I had no idea he'd be doing it live in front of the nation."

Mo was also touched this his fellow athlete and friend Usain Bolt borrowed his signature move when he won the men's relay at the close of London 2012:

"Seeing him and Usain Bolt doing the Mobot are great moments which will stick in my head for ever."

"[It was also] hilarious to see Cheryl Cole adding herself to the list of Moboteers."
