When Sir Mo Farah retires from running, he wants to work in children's television.

Sir Mo Farah is planning a surprise career move into children's television, believing he has what it takes, and it could happen soon as his athletic career draws to a close.

"I want to be a presenter on kids TV shows," Mo, a father of four, told the Daily Star Sunday.

That would be fantastic because I am a big kid myself.

"I'd like to work in that industry to encourage kids to be more active."

Mo, 38, believes he'd be ideal for a kids' show because he doesn't mind being embarrassed.

He makes his kids cringe and doesn't seem to mind.

"I'm always embarrassing them," he explained. "The other day, I was driving and listening to UB40 with the window down, and the kids were like, 'Dad, what are you doing?'"

Mo is more open to trying new things than ever after competing on I'm A Celebrity last year.

"I'd love to keep doing different things; I want to do something crazy," he continued.

Because he plans to retire from athletics soon, Mo is eager to carve out a new career path.

"I'll keep going for another year and see what happens," he said.
