Please forgive me: Asbel Kiprop pleads with wife after raunchy video with lover leaked – VIDEO

By NAHASHON MUSUNGU September 18th, 2018 2 min read

Three-time World 1,500 metres champion Asbel Kiprop has publicly pleaded for forgiveness from his estranged wife after admitting to cheating on her for two years.

Even more intriguing is Kiprop’s confession that his lover, a married woman, was at the time also having a sexual affair with a third man!

In a tell-it-all interview with Switch TV, the 29-year old athlete said his wife of six years had walked out of their matrimonial home in Eldoret after a video of his escapades with his lover leaked on social media.


Kiprop filmed himself kissing and groping his lover’s breasts inside a car. He insists he does not know how the video was leaked to the public. The video went viral on social media.

He disclosed details of how the woman used to lure him to sneak out of training camp to spend time with her during the steamy affair that lasted for two years.

The frequent distractions made his form to dip and he started under-performing on the track.

“She was also cheating on me I am sorry to say,” a visibly composed Kiprop explained during the interview.

“So (by shooting the video) I was confessing to the man (my best friend) and the society of my wrongdoings.”

“The bible says confess your sins so you shall be forgiven. I saw the tribulations that I was undergoing and I thought maybe there is a sin that I committed. I remember in 2015 I had a very good season (on the track).”


“At the moment they (the woman) are in good terms with the husband but I have a problem because my wife is running away but I want to bring her back. I told her that I was confessing to something that she didn’t know for two years. You didn’t catch me,” he said.

Kiprop also maintained his innocence over doping allegations he is currently facing. He said he wants his family back and to get another chance to return to the track and show his prowess.
