Kenyan Wilson Kipsang smashed the marathon world record by 15 seconds as he stormed to the Berlin title on Sunday and breaking the tape at the finishing line should have been an amazing moment.
However, he never got to do that due to some idiot spectator sneaking on to the course to cross the finishing line first.
To make the moment all the more unsavoury, the intruder used the occasion to promote a sleazy website that looks to connect prostitutes with "gentlemen with high demands."
We have pixelated out the name of the website in the above picture supplied by Reuters so as not to give this clown any free publicity and can only hope the German police punish him sufficiently.
Rather it is worth looking at the amazing performance from Kipsang who clocked a time of two hours three minutes and 23 seconds to better the previous mark set by compatriot Patrick Makau in the same race two years ago.
Kipsang, who won the 2012 London Marathon and also took bronze at the Olympics, produced a storming finish to leave compatriot Eliud Kipchoge a distant second almost a minute behind.
"I'm very happy that I have won and broken the world record," Kipsang said in a televised interview after the race.
"I was really inspired by Paul Tergat when he broke the world record here 10 years ago and I'm very happy that I was in a position to break the record on the same course."
