Joshua Cheptegei who won the 2017 World Athletics Championships 10,000m silver medal has today arrived in Uganda amid joy and chants.

Cheptegei who won the medal after a fine run at London Stadium in UK, has been offered a warm welcome by friends, family and well wishers.

He has also been treated to a ritual-like ceremony by some of his excited clan members as soon as he landed at Entebbe Airport probably thanking the ‘Creator’ for having made him move that far.

He bagged a sh108million prize for his effort, joining a small band of Ugandans to have won World Championships medals.
