17 August 2012

He's won two Olympic gold medals but London 2012's national treasure Mo Farah reckons seeing celebs like Cheryl Cole copying his infamous 'Mobot' pose is an amazing prize in itself!

Mo became the toast of Team GB when he took home two medals at this month's London Olympic games. Soon his trademark 'Mobot' pose was sweeping the nation with some famous faces keen to get in on the act!

Whilst Russell Brand recreated the famous pose live at the Closing Ceremony, Cheryl Cole and her Girls Aloud bandmates posted their attempt on Twitter, and the creator of the move has said he's delighted such big names are copying him.

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."
