Izzard on Sport Relief marathon achievement


Comedian Eddie Izzard has said his fundraising achievement of running 43 marathons was possible due to his "primal" design.

Izzard, who ran at least 27 miles per day and took just one day off per week, covered about 1,100 miles on his route across the UK.
