Tottenham Hotspur fans have implored London Marathon champion Eluid Kipchoge to help instill a winning mentality at White Hart Lane.
The 33-year old athlete made a surprise visit to the English club on Tuesday where compatriot and Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama plies his trade.
Photos released by the club showed a smiling Kipchoge, fresh from winning the London Marathon for a third successive time, posing for photos with a host of stars including coach Mauricio Pochettino, striker Delli Alli and defender Serge Aurier.

Kipchohe is one of the most successful road runners of all time. He is the reigning Olympic champion. He has also triumphed at the Berlin and Chicago marathons.
The London club’s last league title was in 1961 and fans understandably begged the Kenyan athlete to share his winning formula.

Proud to be Kenyan, politicians are the one letting us down, our sportsmen and women are our great ambassadors
