SIR MO FARAH picked up the Sports Personality of the Year award tonight and fans have been speculating about a certain response to his win.
During the BBC’s broadcast, a camera shows Paula Radcliffe’s husband’s reaction and some fans are saying he exclaimed it was a “f****** joke”.
BBC Some viewers believe Paula Radcliffe’s husband called Sir Mo Farah’s win a ‘f****** joke’
Viewers on Twitter were convinced Lough dropped the f-bomb, with one writing: “Love Paula Radcliffe’s husband mouthing “f****** joke” as Mo Farah wins #SPOTY. Whatever could he mean?”
Another user said: “Was that Paula Radcliffe’s husband shaking his head in disgust?! #spoty.”
It is unlikely he did say that, as Gary Lough recently became Farah’s coach, when he moved from the US back to the UK in October.
Farah’s victory was a shock, as he was a 50/1 outsider, with heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua the nailed on favourite.
