Olympic Champion Eliud Kipchoge broke the world record in marathon as he clocked a time of two hours one minute 39 seconds in Berlin.

He broke his compatriot Dennis Kimetto’s record of 2:02:57 set in the same event in 2014.

In 2017, the Kenyan clocked 2:00:25 but because pacemakers who could swap in and out of the run were used, the time was not recognised as a world record.

The women’s race was won by Gladys Cherono of Kenya in 2:18:11.
