That's how long, or little, it took Kenyan superstar runner Eliud Kipchoge to cover the 42.2km of the Berlin Marathon - and smash the world record in the process by a staggering 78 seconds.
It knocked 1min 18sec off the previous record set by Dennis Kimetto, his fellow Kenyan, over the same course four years ago. "But I would treat it as a personal best." he said before the race as reported by New York Times.
"Congratulations Eliud Kipchoge for breaking the world record at the Berlin marathon 2018".
"I lack the words to describe how I feel", said Kipchoge.
"It was hard. I ran my own race, I trusted my trainers, my programme and my coach".

With weather conditions flawless and virtually no wind, it was clear after the opening few kilometres that Kipchoge's only opponent would be the clock and his three pacemakers were pushed to the limit to keep the tempo high as Kipchoge dipped well below world-record time by the halfway mark. "Running a sub two hours two minutes was simply incredible and I believe I can still go below that with such good conditions".

Kipchoge kept up the pace to sprint through the Brandenburg Gate and complete a world record run that cements his reputation as one of the greatest runners of all time.

Running alone with 17 kilometres left, Kipchoge then sped up.
