After securing his name in the history books and achieving G.O.A.T status, a very happy Eliud Kipchoge had this to say after the race:

“I am feeling good. It has taken 65 years for a human being to make history in sports; after Sir Roger Bannister. I have tried. I am the happiest man to run under 2 hours to inspire many people; to tell people that no human is limited, you can do it. I am expecting more athletes from all over the world to run under 2 hours…”
