Eddie Izzard completes Sport Relief marathons challenge

Comedian Eddie Izzard has completed his challenge in South Africa to run 27 marathons in 27 days for Sport Relief. The 54-year-old needed to run a double marathon on Sunday to complete his challenge beneath a statue of Nelson Mandela, in Pretoria. Izzard attempted a similar feat in South Africa in 2012 but had to pull out for health reasons. The comedian's endurance feat raised more than £1.35m. The 2016 Sport Relief total stands at £56,984,007.http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35856814
