'Anything is possible': Eliud Kipchoge on his sub-two hour marathon record

Eliud Kipchoge speaks after his historic sub-two hour marathon run in Vienna on Saturday – running 26.22 miles in 1:59:40. 
Kipchoge was helped by 41 pacemakers along the route, seven at a time, including former Olympic and world record holders, in his attempt to achieve the milestone.
The use of rolling pacemakers and the race not being an open event, meant it will not count as an official world record, it is however a moment in history that Kipchoge likened to the late Sir Roger Bannister breaking the four minute mile barrier in 1954.
