Because of who I am, people ask for photos. I can't just say no to everyone.

Some suggestions for you :

Everything happens for a reason, so you shouldn't get wound up.

I try to be honest in what I do and in everything I do. I try to be honest with my family.

To be knighted, that would be amazing. I remember Alex Ferguson from Man Utd got it and Steve Redgrave - to be in the same category as them is amazing.

Come join us; see the reality of what I have to do to achieve what I achieve. There are no cutting corners.

There's Kenyan guys who last year or two years ago were running for Kenya, and then they switched to Qatar and Bahrain and other countries. Yes, I do have a problem with that.

I'd heard a lot about Dubai before I first visited and couldn't wait to go.

Even though running is work for me, I always miss it if I take a break. A lot of people find running relaxing, but I can never switch off from timing and competing against myself.

I'm as much of a human being as the rest of the world. But if I don't train, I don't win. If I don't focus, I don't win. So I don't have a choice: I just have to run.

I am just grateful I have a British passport and a country here.

I grew up with a lot of friends who are white, black, Muslim, non-Muslim. I like people a lot.

I work every day, and every year I spend seven months away from my family. I miss my kids' birthdays, and those are times I will never be able to go back on and share with them. That kills me.

I've got four kids, so I plan ahead. I have to book flights far in advance, look at accommodation, where it is, what you can and can't do. Same in running.

It triggers something in you as a human being because you forget what your parents did for you. But when you become a parent, you're like, 'Whoa! It's hard work.' No wonder your parents always tell you off! They've done a lot for you.

There's got to be the same rules for everyone.
