On the subect of Mo Farah, I was surprised to find this around the corner from where I work.

Mo Farah's 5000m Gold Postbox

It's Mo Farah's 5000m gold postbox. Apparently he used to work in the running shop over the road from it in Teddington. So many children standing around it doing the Mobot. A colleague already saw people picking the paint off it though.

Has anyone else seen any gold postboxes around?

I didin't know if that photo upload would work - not done one before! Looks like something isn't quite right.

... I'm sure ... Mo .... wont turn down the inevitable Head and Shoulders type ads that'll get thrown [his] way.

um, advertisers aren't that dim are they?

(am a big Mo' fan, BTW. He does seem a real darlin'. LOVE his smile!)

It IS Philips Idowu, he has the stud in his chin.

Loving all the Mo Farah pics! :lol:

Thanks for clearing that up - looks like he was enjoying himself - must have been very disappointing to have been injured.

Loving this one:

I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.
