Play was suspended for just over two hours at The Magical Kenya Open today when a streaker ran onto and around the golf course during the third round.

European Tour security quickly tried to apprehend the man, believed to be either an ex olympic marathon champion, or on his way to a well, but couldn't match the incredible pace the streaker was maintaining.

Police armed with tranquilliser guns were then loaded into the back of two Toyota Land Cruisers, but they also failed to apprehend the man.

"Did anyone catch what kind of runners he was wearing?" asked Police Chief Roger Kipchengo. "It could be someone from the  Kimetto tribe that live over the hill there, or Charles Kipchoge who likes his Saturday morning run in the nip, or it could be old Grandad Kiptinui who usually pumps out 40 kilometres to get water for the breakfast. If I saw the runners I could probably identify him."

Play resumed at 11am when the streaker disappeared.

More as it emerges.
