EDDIE IZZARD’S MARATHONS FOR MANDELA
Saturday, 8.35pm, SBS ONE
The comic actor continues his attempt to run 27 marathons in consecutive days across South Africa to commemorate Nelson Mandela’s incarceration.
It’s an ambitious attempt for even elite athletes and to say Izzard is finding it tough going is an understatement.
After putting his near collapse in the last episode behind him, he rejoices in the opportunity to run on smooth tarmac instead of rocky terrain. But the joy is short lived.
