The middle-distance runner was treated by members at the gym before paramedics arrived.

Local media station KTN later showed Rudisha alighting from the ambulance and jogging to the hospital due to heavy traffic on Ngong road.

He later tweeted saying that it was all a stunt as his aim was to increase awareness and educate Kenyans about the importance of giving way to ambulances on the roads and also importance of ambulance Services.
