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.
Kwisha sasa! Kisungu kilikuja na maji kweli.

If Rudisha says it's upload then it's upload, grammar will have to change.
