A photo of David Rudisha, the Olympic champion and world record holder in the 800 meters, clad in police uniform has gone viral on social media.
Most Kenyans used to seeing him in his sporting gear were appalled at the sight of the cop in the course of duty.
Rudisha has worn three records consecutively and also won the IAAF world athlete of the year award in 2010.
Kenyans on Twitter have shared his picture on all social media platforms.
Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula said on his official twitter account: “Amused to see “King” David Rudisha in police regalia. Is it now policy to dress our policemen in caps that are ill-fitting?”
Another person said: “One of Kenya’s best 800 metres athlete DavidRudisha proudly in his Kenya police uniform where he serves.”
