A fatiguing marathon runner in the leading pack raised eyebrows at the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday when he knocked over an entire row of drinks and ran off with the last bottle.

As the frontrunners crossed the 28km mark France’s Morhad Amdouni stuck his hand out and knocked over more than 20 bottles before he could grab hold of one.

Unfortunately for the Frenchman, he eventually fell away from the leading pack to finish in 17th.
