A former Olympian has taken a day of rest to end a 52-year running streak of at least one mile every single day.
Ron Hill, who competed at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964 and Munich in 1972, has put on his running shoes every day since 20 December 1964 - a total of 52 years and 39 days.
The 78-year-old won marathon gold medals at the European Championships in 1969 and the 1970 Commonwealth Games.
