Eddie Izzard: 'I won't give up on my Mandela marathons'

Eddie Izzard says he will return to South Africa to finish his marathon challenge.

The comedian was forced to put the running challenge, a tribute to Nelson Mandela, on hold in May.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, he gave no indication of when he will resume the 27 marathons but vowed not to give up.
