Check out LaTonya Norton, the New Orleans news anchor who didn’t know who two-time Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah was.
The Great Britain Olympian had just set a course record during the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Half Marathon and was doing an interview for local station WDSU when Norton asked him the awkward question.
Farah – who won the 10,000 and 5,000 meter races at the summer’s Olympics – managed to see the funny side though when chatting to CNN’s Piers Morgan.
@piersmorgan haha it was bit funny..!! I felt sorry for her… So I tried to help her out…!! All good though!
