Eliud Kipchoge remains defiant that the controversial Nike shoes that he ran his sub-two-hour marathon in are 'fair', claiming the sport should get on board with technological advances.

Kenya's Brigid Kosgei smashed Paula Redcliffe's marathon record in Chicago, recording a time of 2hr 14min 4sec while wearing the Nike Vaporfly - which are set to be banned.
