A giant pair of balls has just run the London Marathon

Not unusual, no.

THE LONDON MARATHON is on today, and tens of thousands of people are willingly running 26 goddamn miles through the city.

Amongst the people in running gear and fancy dress was a gigantic pair of balls. Spot them?

Lots of people were quite amused at the sight.

Some people mistook the costume for a potato, but nope – balls.

‘Mr Testicles’ is the mascot of the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign, which aims to encourage discussion around prostate and testicular cancer.

The poor soul that ran 26 miles while wearing a testicle suit is one Jack Woodward, who did it in memory of his friend Rob, who died from testicular cancer at the age of 21.

Woodward told BBC Newsbeat:

I think too many people are too self-conscious to go and get checked or if they find something they just brush it off… You should just go get it checked, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

That took (ahem) balls. We salute you, Mr Testicles.
