King Rudisha produced a last-lap kick to defend his Olympic title in style in Rio on Tuesday morning.

The 800m world champion and world record holder timed a season’s best of 1min 42.15sec to become the first man in 52 years to defend the 800m title.

His extended family on Tuesday celebrated his win at home where the young daughter congratulated her dad.

His wife later distributed food to street families in Eldoret town.
