Plenty of Britons had stayed up late to watch Mo make history.

Mo Farah unbelievable! The double double πŸ…πŸ…#Rio2016

And they lost their collective shit...

OMG!!! #MoFarah incredible run, that was astonishing!!! #TeamGB

All Hail The Emperor @Mo_Farah. Legend. What a privilege to witness that man race. D Double. Ooower Ooower!!


Wow! Just Wow! Rio is Mo Town. @Mo_Farah is surely the greatest long-distance runner of all time. The double double.

And if Brendan Foster says #MoFarah is the best #TeamGB distance runner ever and one of the greatest the world has seen, that'll do for me.

Mo Farah represents the very best of the British character. He was a kid from a wartorn hellhole, and we took him in.

Britain right now...

Pretty sure this women in the @Mo_Farah selfie represents all of us in #GBR right now
