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, an official said.
Ms Tirop, 25, was found dead on Wednesday in the western town of Iten, a training centre for top athletes.
She had finished fourth in this year’s Tokyo Olympic 5,000m final.
In 2019, she had won the 10,000m bronze at the 2019 World Athletics Championships.
Her husband is in custody after being arrested “while fleeing”, George Kinoti, the director of criminal investigations.
