Police in Kenya have arrested the husband of record-breaking long-distance runner Agnes Tirop who was stabbed to death at her home.
Emmanuel Rotich, who was detained in the coastal city of Mombasa, will face charges once investigations are completed.
25 year old Tirop, was found dead on Wednesday in the western town of Iten, a training centre for top athletes.
Last month, she broke the women-only 10km road race world record.
The police said Rotich, described as the prime suspect in her killing, was caught on Thursday as he was trying to go “to a neighbouring country to evade justice”.
