Amazing, I grew up watching this great man and he was a great influence on me getting in to running and then triathlons.

 Great to see him get the massive respect he deserves, could have delved deeper back to his humble beginnings and what he does for his country and running in general, but what a brilliant man. If he retires, then they should erect monuments in his name.
