The reigning Olympic marathon champion and sub-two-hour man bounced back from his shock defeat in London last October to take victory in the NN Mission Marathon in Enschede in 2:04:30.


The Kenyan hero had Jonathan Korir and pacemaker Philemon Kacheran for company at 30km.


But minutes later, Kipchoge made his move and eased clear of Korir on his way to an emphatic victory on the special looped course at Twente Airport.


This was Kipchoge's last marathon before he defends his Olympic title at Tokyo 2020 on 8 August.
