Comedian Eddie Izzard has completed her 31-day virtual marathon run by raising over £200k for charity.
Speaking from her treadmill after Sunday's double marathon, she said she felt "very honoured" by the support.
The livestreamed runs, held across different virtual cities, are part of her Make Humanity Great Again goodwill initiative.
Actor George Clooney helped Izzard cross the finish line in London and urged people to stay Covid-safe.
"Remember, we're almost through this everybody, hang tight!" he said.
"Wear a mask, stay distanced, we're almost there."

I'm really impressed by Eddie Izzard. She does so much charity work I wonder when she has time for much else. It was nice to see George cheer her on to the finish line.

(Just curious. When did she come out as trans?)

Yes, Lizzy, has done for a long, long time and usually it's marathons. Very, very funny in

concert. Came out as trans not so very long ago, I think. Completely forgot the George

connection - she was in Oceans 12 and 13 of course!

I didn't know she'd transitioned either!  I don't understand exactly what it was that George did to help?

PAN - Thanks for the link. I loved the Roman Nagel character, but didn't know it was Eddie Izzard. She looks so different now! (It feels a bit odd calling her "her" when she was so very much a "him" in the film.)

Watched 'Oceans 13' tonight - can't say I've ever known exactly what's going on - but it's still

great fun and good to look at!

PAN - "Ocean's 13" is easy. "Ocean's 11" is the one that drives me nuts! I still can't figure out how the fake vault was used or how George got back into the room with Bruiser - unless he turned into Spiderman! Evil or Very Mad

What an interesting revelation.  I remember the Roman character from the Oceans movies.  Neither did I know he became a she.

Strangest thing “ we’re almost through this everyone hang tight”...

Hope so .... but in truth ... I’m having a panic attack

WWHS - Give Flowers  Don't panic. It is slowly getting better. Stick your head out the window and take a couple of deep breaths - or, if you can - go out and take a walk somewhere away from people but close to nature. It's still a beautiful world! And George is right - we just need to hang tight a little longer.
