Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge became the first man to run a marathon under two hours after he completed the INEOS 1:59 Challenge in 1:59:40.

Kenyans online were full of praise for the marathon great who ensured his name was etched in history and some proposed that he should be given a proper homecoming when he jets back home.
