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.
As Tony the Fridge attempts to complete the challenge of four marathons in 24 hours, his supporters are tweeting him messages of good luck.
While you were sleeping, @tony_the_fridge was running another Marathon in London. Give him your support (and a good breakfast)
Thanks everybody for all the lovely messages, I'm exhausted and emotional but I'm still going because you x
