Reuters – David Rudisha escaped unhurt after his car collided with a bus on a highway near Keroka in his native Kenya on Saturday, the Olympic 800 metres champion said on Monday (August 26).

The collision took place when the 30-year-old Rudisha was travelling home to Kilgoris in western Kenya, after he lost control of his SUV when a tyre burst, the BBC reported.

“Thanking the Almighty God for the gift of life,” 800 metres world record holder Rudisha said in a Tweet accompanied by a picture of his mangled car.

Rudisha was taken to Keroka Sub County Hospital after the accident.

“The doctors revealed that the athlete had not suffered any fractures, and he has been allowed to go home and rest,” the BBC quoted Keroka police chief Walter Abondo as saying.

Rudisha, Olympic champion in 2012 and 2016 and twice world champion, has a wildcard to participate in next month’s world championships in Doha.
