Mo Farah has earned the right to a lot of things recently. Adulation, respect, two great big gold medals and now he's become an internet sensation thanks to the Tumblr site Mo Farah Running Away From Things.

Still in its infancy and with no doubt hundreds more pictures yet to be made, the site has already become a viral hit after only a few days in existence. Almost all the pics see Mo inserted into famous movies, such as 'Jurassic Park', 'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones'.

We had a crack ourselves making an admittedly small Mo run away from famous movie endurance runner 'Forrest Gump'.

Mo Farah of course ran and won the 10000m and 5000m Olympic finals, becoming Team GB's most successful athlete on the track at London 2012 and becoming the first Brit to win gold in the 10000m race.
