‘So, Mo… Have you done any running before?’

Britain's double Olympic champion Mo Farah won the New Orleans half marathon at the weekend, setting a course record of one hour 59 seconds after holding off Ethiopian Gebre Gebremariam in a sprint finish.

It marked another successful step for the Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m champion, who decided after London 2012 to move up to the marathon in time for Rio 2016.

But one person who didn't really pick up on the significance of the win was the local TV news anchorwoman. In fact, it was pretty clear that she didn't have the slightest idea who she was talking to.

The excruciating interview, which should play automatically in the box above, has now gone viral on the web, immortalising perhaps the most unusual interview of Farah's stellar career.
