Mo Farah may from his training camp in Ethiopia simply travel to the United States. The ministry of Foreign Affairs in Washington has given him that assurance.

The measure of the American president, Donald Trump for, among others, people from Somalia not to provide access to the United States, does not apply to the four-time olympic champion.

Farah was born in Somalia but has the British citizenship. The athlete wrote Sunday on Facebook full of dismay about the measure of Trump.

“It is very worrying that my children need to tell that daddy will perhaps not come home by a rule that is based on ignorance and prejudices,” wrote Farah.

“On January 1 of this year, I was knighted by the queen of the United Kingdom. 26 days later, it seems that president Trump of me a stranger.”
