    This comes days after the champion took to his Facebook page, right after his win in Beijing, telling off East African Breweries Limited (EABL) for using his name to promote their brand.

    The image by Tusker was a silhouette of a man throwing a javelin with the words 'YEGOLD! A WORLD LEADING RECORDS IN JAVELIN THROW #TEAMKENYA'.

    Yego had said it was wrong and he would not support it.
