New Delhi: An exercise-enthusiast ran the equivalent of an ultra-marathon inside his small apartment in China as people have been asked to be indoors to save from coronavirus outbreak.

All gyms are closed. No morning, evening walks are allowed. According to an AFP report, Pan Shancu would have easily won the unofficial gold medal as he jogged 66 kilometres (41 miles) in a loop at home in six hours, 41 minutes. He has the data tracker that he says proves it, and the 44-year-old’s feat and a video of him repeatedly circling furniture in his apartment went viral in China.

“I felt a little dizzy at first, but you get used to it after you circle many times,” Pan told AFP. “Running is like an addiction. If you don’t run for a long time, you get itchy feet,” he said.
