Double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah has spoken out about his trademark victory sign, The Mobot, which has sweeped the nation.

The 29-year-old, who made history last week by winning both the 5,000m and 10,000m race during the London 2012 Games, says he is amazed to see both celebrities, including Cheryl Cole and Usain Bolt, and members of the public doing his signature victory sign.

In a diary he kept for The Sun in the week following his win, Mo said: "My feet barely touched the ground because 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."

"Britain is sport-mad now. People have been inspired. To see people doing the Mobot in the street is proof of the impact it has had," he added, before revealing his delight at Cheryl Cole and her Girls Aloud bandmates becoming Moboters.

Expect to see it for years to come Mo!
