Eliud Kipchoge has completed the INEOS challenge Marathon clocking 1:59:40 to become the first marathoner under the sun to run a marathon in under two hours.

The 34 year old world marathon record holder missed the mark by 26 seconds during the Monza race track in Italy in 2017.

“I’m feeling good, the first man to run the marathon under two hours and hopefully this inspires mankind. The race was difficult especially the first kilometre which needed a lot of concentration. I want to thank my pacesetters who are a world class group.

“I want to make this sport exciting and transform the world into a running world. I thank the fans who watched me for being part of this journey…this is history,” Kipchoge said in his post-race.
