I'm behind Mo.
ED Miliband called on the country to back Mo Farah in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards - saying his first victory was the "defining moment" of the London Olympics.
The Labour leader hailed the Games as an example of Britain's ethnic diversity in a speech urging more direct action to further integration.
"If anything was a defining moment of the Olympics, amidst so many defining moments, it was Mo Farah's victories," he said.
Mo Farah "And wasn't that an amazing interview when he was asked: 'Wouldn't you rather be running for Somalia?' and he replied: 'This is my country mate'.
"That's why I will be voting for him for Sports Personality of the Year on Sunday," he told an audience in Tooting, south London, urging others to follow his lead.
