Sir Mo Farah has criticised Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown which he fears may ban him from returning home to his wife and daughters who live in the US.
The President signed an executive order on Friday which prevents any citizen of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for 90 days.
One of those countries is Somalia, the birthplace of Britain’s most successful athlete who won double Olympic gold medals in 2012 and 2016.
The long-distance runner, who is currently training in Ethiopia, lives with his family in Oregon.
Sir Mo wrote on Facebook: ‘On 1st January this year, Her Majesty The Queen made me a Knight of the Realm. On 27th January, President Donald Trump seems to have made me an alien.
‘I am a British citizen who has lived in America for the past six years – working hard, contributing to society, paying my taxes and bringing up our four children in the place they now call home.
‘Now, me and many others like me are being told that we may not be welcome. It’s deeply troubling that I will have to tell my children that Daddy might not be able to come home – to explain why the President has introduced a policy that comes from a place of ignorance and prejudice.’
‘I was welcomed into Britain from Somalia at eight years old and given the chance to succeed and realise my dreams. I have been proud to represent my country, win medals for the British people and receive the greatest honour of a knighthood.
‘My story is an example of what can happen when you follow polices of compassion and understanding, not hate and isolation.
Sir Mo still does not know if the ban applies to him because even though he was born in Somalia, he now only holds a British passport. Due to return home in a few weeks, he is seeking to clarify the situation with the US authorities.
The sudden ban has affected dozens of other British residents, many of whom have been trapped in transit, unable to fly to the US.
Airlines such as British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are offering refunds to customers whose travel plans have been ruined.
One woman affected is Hamaseh Tayari, a UK resident with an Iranian passport, who is stranded in Costa Rica after being denied boarding a flight home to Glasgow because it was due to stop-over in New York.

Glasgow vet stranded in Costa Rica by Trump
Monday 30th January 2017
GLASGOW vet Hamaseh Tayari has been left stranded in Costa Rica because of US President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown, it was reported yesterday.
Ms Tayari, who holds an Iranian passport, had been due to fly back to Glasgow via New York at the weekend after a holiday in Latin America.
An appeal launched on Saturday night raised more than £6,000 to help cover Ms Tayari’s costs of booking alternative flights.
It is hoped that she can return to Scotland tomorrow.
