Tania met the future Olympian when he was a student at a university in West London. She keeps a low profile but told the Telegraph she misses Mo when he is away training. He said: “It’s hard but it’s something we’ve had to deal with since we first got together really.
“Mo was going too far from day one, so I had to get used to it pretty quickly.”
When did they get married?
The couple married in 2010, celebrating a lavish wedding in Richmond. Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram, and Joe Pavey were just some of the big names in attendance. Farah’s training led him to live in his adopted home of Portland, Oregon.
Tania opened a “royal-themed” luxury spa in Portland in May 2017, named British Manor Spa. But he has since moved back to London. Mo, who is accompanied by daughter Rhianna, wife Tania, and twin daughters Ayesha and Amani Sir Mo, revealed on Monday that he was brought to the UK in illegal circumstances at the age of nine by a woman he did not know.
His father was killed in the civil war in Somaliland and his mother never visited Britain. He told the BBC: “For years I put it off,” says the Team GB athlete. But you can only hold it for so long.”
