Tony 'The Fridge' abandons challenge after 52 miles

Tony Phoenix-Morrison, the fundraiser who carries a 42kg fridge, has been forced to abandon his latest challenge - which he had said would be his last - because of sickness.

Tony, known as 'The Fridge', was trying to run four marathons within 24 hours, starting with the London Marathon.

However, he has suffered sunstroke and sickness overnight, including fainting. He called the race off after his second marathon.

I don't care about records of challenges. I started this to raise thousands of pounds for charity, which I have. I had a magnificent reception from the Londoners and that is what counts. What will be, will be.
