Mo Farah’s son’s temper tantrum stole the show at the SPOTY last night

You cannot plan for these things.

Mo Farah

As every parent will know, you cannot plan for when your child might throw a tantrum. Sometimes, it can happen in the most unfortunate of places.

For Mo Farah, it happened when he was being honoured with the Sports Personality of the Year Award last night. He couldn’t make the event in Liverpool, so he was being broadcast live to collect the award.

He was joined by his daughter Rihanna and his son Hussein for the segment.

Little 2-year-old Hussein couldn’t quite handle the situation and demanded to be in his dad’s arms, leaving poor Mo very distracted while being interviewed live on television.

People at home were loving it.
