The Running Man has grabbed the headlines again in Vietnam after starring in the Hanoi Vertical Run.

The event, which sees competitors race to the top of the 72-storey Landmark 72 building, took place on Sunday with hundreds of participants.

Vu Xuan Tien - who shot to fame after running alongside the Arsenal team bus in Hanoi this summer - had been practising for some time and finished in a time of 11 minutes 44 seconds.

That was enough to make him the top-ranking amateur runner aged between 12 and 29 years and put him well ahead of the second and third-placed runners - Hugo Page (12 minutes 32 seconds) and Erik Cunelius (12 minutes 44 seconds).
