Co3Sn2S2, is a ferromagnetic Weyl semimetal and has been the subject of intense scientific interest due to its large anomalous Hall effect. We show that the coupling of this material's topological properties to its magnetic texture leads to a strongly exchange biased anomalous Hall effect. We argue that this is likely caused by the coexistence of ferromagnetism and spin glass phases, the latter being driven by the geometric frustration intrinsic to the Kagome network of magnetic ions.
