Most people are still in bed, but Siar Ozgul starts eight kilometre run through the cold streets of London before the sun rises over the city.

“The reason I came to London is because I have a specific ambition,” said the 23-year-old who left his home in Istanbul four years ago.

"I want to be a world champion."

TRT World's Matthew Moore spent time with Ozgul in London.
