Sir Mo Farah has been praised after revealing how he was trafficked as a child from Djibouti to the UK, and forced to work as a domestic servant. The Olympic star told the BBC how he was flown over from the east African country aged nine by a woman he had never met, and then made to look after another family’s children. “We applaud Mo Farah for his bravery in telling his heart-breaking story,” tweeted Britain’s Refugee Council charity. “He underlines the human reality at the heart of so many stories like his – and the desperate need for safe and humane routes for people seeking asylum.”
