Kipchoge, 33, broke the record set in 2014 by Kenya's Dennis Kimetto by 1 minute, 18 seconds.
By the half way mark, Kipchoge had completely imposed himself on the race with chasing compatriot Wilson Kipsang and Amos Kipruto nowhere in sight.
Kipchoge ran virtually half the race alone after dropping the last pacemaker Josephat Bout at the 25km mark having taken him through in 1:12:24 which was 36 seconds within World Record pace. It was really hard, but I was truly prepared to run my own race. "That's what pushed me in the last kilometres", added Kipchoge.
With his 1:18 demolition of the previous record on Sunday- almost three seconds faster per mile than Kimetto's mark- Kipchoge has now reached a summit that seems befitting of a man who has rarely been challenged in the event.
Berlin has now been the stage for the last six men's world records over the distance. "I didn't know that what I was believing translated to 2:01 but I'm happy for it".
If it was expected that Kipchoge would be slowing down as the race progressed, then "the great philosopher" went exactly the opposite direction.
But, at the 30km mark Kipchoge was 52 seconds ahead of WR pace and the magic 2:02:57 mark was within sight again.
You'd have to go back 50-years to find a single bigger world record leap than Kipchoge's this weekend.
Kipchoge will be rewarded with a total sum of €120,000 ($139,614) for his performance on Sunday, including a €50,000 bonus for the world record, a €40,000 for coming first, and €30,000 bonus for keeping his time below two hours and four minutes. Sunday's marathon marked the first time in history that three women have broken 2:19 in the same race.
Fellow Kenyan Amos Kipruto came second in 2 hours, 6 minutes and 23 seconds, followed by a third Kenyan, former world-record holder Wilson Kipsang, who was 25 seconds behind.
He has notched up 10 wins from the 11 marathons he has raced, winning three times not only in Berlin but also London, with victories in Rio for Olympic gold as well as in Hamburg, Rotterdam and Chicago.
Kipchoge, who a year ago took part in the Nike Breaking Two project, where he ran two hours and 25 seconds with the aid of "illegal" in and out pacemakers, started off at a sizzling pace.
