Finsbury Park made a surprise appearance on BBC One’s The Apprentice last night, when it played host to a special training session with world beating runner Mo Farah CBE.

Mo, who is a Double Olympic Champion, World Champion, and six time European Champion, put this week’s winning team through their paces at the track, which is run by the Finsbury Park Sports Partnership.


It was episode four of the series, where candidates are competing to win £250,000 to invest in a new business venture with Lord Alan Sugar. This week’s triumphant competitors, Team Versatile, were treated to the workout after making most sales in a task selling luxury dog beds and animal shaped balloons at the National Pet Show in May.

Mo is no stranger to the area as he is an avid supporter of Arsenal FC.

The episode is repeated on BBC One this Saturday at 11.50pm and is also available on iPlayer here.
