Gauss-Bonnet gravity provides one of the most promising frameworks to study curvature corrections to the Einstein action in supersymmetric string theories, while avoiding ghosts and keeping second-order field equations. Although Schwarzschild-type solutions for Gauss-Bonnet black holes have been known for a long time the Kerr-Gauss-Bonnet metric was missing. In this paper, a five dimensional Gauss-Bonnet solution is analytically derived for spinning black holes and briefly outlined.
