Sir Mo Farah has said he is "relieved" the Home Office will not take action against him after he revealed he was trafficked into the UK, adding: "I'm just grateful for every chance I've got in Britain to embrace my country."

The four-time Olympic champion, 39, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he has no desire to contact the woman who brought him illegally to the country as a child.
