Joshua Cheptegei added more gloss to his remarkable recent streak of success by securing the world 5000m record in a time of 12:35.36 at the Herculis EBS Diamond League meeting in Monaco.

In the first regular top-flight international one-day meet since the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ugandan produced an exhilarating performance running alongside the Wavelight at the Stade Louis II Stadium to wipe two seconds from Kenenisa Bekele’s 16-year old world record time of 12:37.55.
