Mo Farah took a step back in time for his latest photoshoot.
The Olympic legend donned a baggy jacket and a flat top wig for the unique snaps, showing us how he could have looked in the 1980s.
With a cassette player in hand, Farah appeared to enjoy his new look – even if it was only temporary.
The shoot was for Running World UK magazine’s 25th anniversary edition, which features a range of photos from the event.
As part of the piece, Farah was asked questions about his life on and off the track.
He revealed that he tries not to get sidetracked thinking about trivial things when he is running – and instead prefers to remain fully focused on his own state
Asked what goes through his mind in the latter stages of a race, Farah said: “Good question. And let me tell you: it doesn’t just get tough, it gets very tough!
“I think you could see that on my face at the London Marathon this year. I know people like Paula [Radcliffe] do things to zone out, like count to 100 over and over, but I don’t have any tricks like that.
“I just keep going over the training I’ve done in my head and telling myself how strong, how fit, how ready I am – and how everything I have done means I can handle the pain
Farah is not too far off retirement but he insists that he will not put on weight when he finally slows down his training regime.
He said: “No chance! Firstly, it’s not setting a good example to my kids.
“Secondly, I love challenging myself, so I’ll always be up for trying new things and signing on for anything that sounds fun; and thirdly, I need to stay the same good-looking guy that my wife married!”
