Mo Farah reflects on his "amazing" year which saw him claim two Olympic gold medals and become a father to twin girls.

Great Britain's double Olympic gold medal winner Mo Farah has hailed his "amazing" year ahead of opening the Great North Run this morning.

Farah, who claimed the 5000m and 10000m gold and then became the father of twin girls, also paid tribute to the support he received from the crowd during his distance double.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Farah said: "I've watched little bits [of the highlights]. What a year, it's been amazing.

"Going into the 10k I felt a lot of pressure. I was expected to win so it was important that I did well.

"The crowd were just so loud. Every lap they were getting louder and louder. It gave me a boost. It was a home advantage for sure."

Farah recently won the two-mile race at the Great North City Games but will not enter the Great North Run.
