The Olympic champion namechecked the wrong brother when posting a selfie with the Ballad Of The Mighty I singer.
Mo Farah made the ultimate gaffe when he mistook Noel Gallagher for his brother Liam at one of U2's Twickenham gigs last weekend.
The Olympic champion took a picture with the Oasis songsmith, but wrote an unfortunate caption on Twitter which read: "Chilling with my boy liamgallagher U2 concert in Twickenham..!!"
Never one to miss the chance for some craic, Liam fired back a response at the long distance runner, writing: "Good to see u2 mo as you were LG x"

Luckily for Mo, he didn't make the same error on his Instagram post, which included Noel's handle @themightyi.
Phew. And yes, that is Matt Morgan from the Russell Brand show you can see in the background.
Mo probably wouldn't have made the error on Twitter, had he known what Liam had to say about U2 and his brother last week.
Responding to a fan who asked him if he'd be watching the One band, the outspoken rocker said he'd "rather eat shit" than watch Bono and co.
The Wall Of Glass singer then upped the ante, calling his brother a "beige boy".
Nothing worse than being blanked by the naffest fans in the world as you were beige boy LFUKING x— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) July 10, 2017
Liam was also keen to accuse his brother of once calling the band "corporate muck", adding: "Corporate muck rkid yousde to call U2 funny eh how many special people change as you were LG x"

His comments are no doubt a reaction to his brother's sly dig at at his turn of phrase, where he wrote a social post ahead of his show, signing out: "AS YOU WEREN'T".
We are pretty much ready. The tunes have been given a good polish. Everyone has been reacquainted. We have new members! We are very much looking forward to seeing old friends and maybe making some new ones but what we are most excited about is sampling the delights of The U2 Catering Experience... widely regarded as THE MOST superior catering experience anywhere in the music business..see you out front. AS YOU WEREN'T..KISS-KISS.. NG
Noel Gallagher paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester and London terror attacks, and those affected by the Grenfell fire, by returning to the stage to play Don't Look Back In Anger with the Irish band.
Watch the moving moment here:
His brother Liam previously performed the track for the first time ever at Glastonbury festival 2017, where he led the crowd at The Other stage in singing the track.

U2 played the last of their two London shows on Sunday (9 July), performing their The Joshua Tree album in full.
Watch them play the album's stirring opening track, Where The Streets Have Name:
The Dublin rockers ended their night with Acthung Baby ballad, One, with Bono asking for all the lights to be turned off as a sea of phones lit up the stadium.
