Rudisha came to the public limelight a few weeks ago after his wife’s Facebook post went viral. In the post, Rudisha’s spouse Lizzy Naanyu accused the 30-year-old two-time world champion of frustrating her and their children.

“David Lekuta Rudisha really stop frustrating me with my kids. To my family, my heart is heavy I can’t hold anymore. I love u all,” Naanyu wrote without elaborating.
