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.
Tony the Fridge has 'just a few miles to go' and is hoping to complete his challenge of four marathons in 24 hours within the hour.

Tony 'The Fridge' Morrison has spent the past few years raising thousands of pounds for cancer charities running the length and breadth of the country with a 42kg fridge on his back.
His efforts have taken their toll on his body and today he's embarking on his final challenge.
Tony, from South Tyneside, is running four marathons in one day. His first was with thousands of others as he took part in the London Marathon.
But while the other runners will be nursing sore limbs and blisters, Tony will continue to run.
Over the last four years he has ran 30 half-marathons in 30 consecutive days and trekked from John O’Groats to Land’s End for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
This final challenge will raise thousands for Cancer Research.
