Eight hundred meters Olympic champion David Rusdisha has been the butt of online jokes after a glaring misspelling in one of his Tweets.

Rudisha was congratulating Kenyans for the high stadium attendance during the just concluded IAAF world under- 18 championships at the Kasarani stadium.

However, instead of the word ‘applaud’, Rudisha wrote ‘upload’, a word used to describe the process of transferring content to an online space.

“I upload Kenyans for breaking the record of the highest attendance ever in #wu18Nairobi2017 #50,000! Amazing Kenyan spirit in athletics,”

Kenyans on Twitter quickly joined in to make fun of Rudisha for his spelling slip.
