Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei has broken the 5000m world record.
The record had been standing for 16 years and Cheptegei beat it by almost two seconds.
The 23-year-old, completed the 5000m in 12 minutes 35.36 seconds.
The previous mark, set by Ethiopian great Kenenisa Bekele, was 12:37.35.
Remarkably it is Cheptegei’s second world record in Monaco this year, despite the season being badly disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
