World 800metres record holder David Rudisha on Friday pulled a stunt pretending he injured himself while training at the Silver Springs, Nairobi.
"I have just gotten acute appendicitis have to cut training short. Headed to the hospital in a swift ambulance," Rudisha tweeted.
Footage showing him alight from the ambulance and jogging to the hospital due to heavy traffic along Ngong Road was shown on a local television.
He later tweeted saying it was all a stunt to highlight the need for better emergency response.
