Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge set a new world record for the marathon in Berlin on Sunday, shaving more than a minute off the previous best. That's when Australian Dennis Clayton took 2:25 off the record and became the first person to run under 2:10:00 for the distance in 1967. Instead it transpired that the pacemakers were holding him back.

Boosted after leaving Boit, he surged, running the 27th kilometre in just 2:51 - seven seconds faster than necessary.
