Mo Farah has revealed that hard work and sacrifice were the key to his London 2012 success.
Speaking the day after his record breaking 5000 metre victory he said: "There are no words to describe it, to cross the line first was the best feeling ever, all the hard work and dedication has paid off."
His performances were in stark contrast to those in Beijing four years ago where he failed to make the final.
"In Beijing I didn't make the final so to come here and be double Olympic champion is unbelievable.
"I work so hard and I run over 100 miles a week, there are days you don't feel like training but you know you have to.
"Being away from your family and loved ones and moving to America has been hard.
"It has not been easy but that is the dedication you have to put into it."
The 29 year old also thanked the crowd for their support, making him proud to part of Team GB.
"The amount of support was amazing, the crowd were going nuts, i will never experice anything like that in my life again,
"I'm very proud to be British, to achieve what I did was incredible."
