Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele broke Mo Farah‘s course record in the men’s Vitality Big Half race in London with a time of one hour and 22 seconds.

Bekele shaved 1:18 minutes off the record set in 2019 by Briton Farah, who missed out with an Achilles injury.

The full London marathon will take place on Sunday, 26 April.

Bekele’s victory sets up an exciting head-to-battle with Eliud Kipchoge, as the two fastest marathon runners of all time line up for April’s race.
