One of the world’s leading distance runners, Agnes Jebet Tirop, has been stabbed to death at her home in Kenya.
The 25-year-old, a two-time world 10,000m bronze medallist, died of wounds to her neck and abdomen.
A criminal investigation is underway. Tom Makori, head of police for the area, said: ‘Her husband is still at large and preliminary investigations tell us he is a suspect because he cannot be found.
Tirop’s death comes only a month after she broke the world 10,000m women-only road record in Germany.
Tirop was fourth in the Olympic 5,000m final in Tokyo in August.
