Showing off his girls, Aisha and Amani, to Hello! magazine (and those medals!) it's clear the running superstar is happier than ever.

"I dreamt of becoming an Olympic champion and to do it twice in your country with a stadium of 80,000 people shouting your name, it doesn't get better than that," he said.

"Then for my wife to have two healthy little girls, well there's no way to describe it."

His wife Tania, 26, said: It's like a fairy tale. We couldn't ask for anything more. Twin one, the eldest, is Aisha. Twin two is Amani."

"He was almost bouncing-off-the-walls excited," she added, describing Mo after he cut the umbilical cord.

The couple joked that they chose the name Amani to get freebies from designer Armani. But the truth behind the girls' names is that they wanted Muslim names beginning with the letter A.

Mo is also the step-father of Rihanna, seven, who ran out to hug him on the track after his 10,000m Olympic win.

The Twins are lovely.  Contratulations to the proud Parents.  And Mo, hope you get the freebies from Amani. Thought I'd mention that Amani means Peace in Swahili.

Congratulations Mo Farah and your wife on your beautiful baby twins.......but dont forget your other daughter ( haven't read the Hello article), but you dont seem to mention Rihanna much especially in interviews, even before they were born! Young children often get it into their heads that they're not as important or special once another baby(ies) arrives, especially if you're in the public spotlight! Well done Rihanna on YOUR two lovely baby sisters. HOWEVER WE ARE ALL VERY PROUD OF YOU MO ESPECIALLY THOSE MEDALS.
