World Marathon Record Holder Eliud Kipchoge joined more than 120 World Leaders at the 26th edition of the Conference of the Parties serving (COPS26) summit that is being held in Glasgow, Scotland.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson invited Heads of State and Government to participate in a World Leaders Summit, which started yesterday Monday, 1 November, and Tuesday, 2 November, when the first part of the high-level segment for Heads of State and Government during the conference will also take place.
The invitation signifies the importance for world leaders to deliver concrete actions and credible plans aimed at achieving successful COP goals and coordinated action to tackle climate change.
The two times Olympic champion mingled with the world kings and Queens at the summit as he had also been invited to press for action to halt and reverse forest loss.
Kipchoge sat along the Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta as they held talks at the ongoing United Nations Climate Change Conference.
