Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge set a new marathon world record in Berlin on Sunday when he clocked 2hr 1min 40sec.

The 33-year-old Olympic champion, aided by a string of pacemakers through to 25km of the 42.195km race, took 1min 17sec off the previous best set four years ago by Dennis Kimetto.

It was the largest single improvement on the marathon world record since Derek Clayton improved the mark by 2:23 in 1967.
