Cheruiyot, Kipchoge bag Kenyan double in London

UK weather Met Office Bookmaker Coral has made it odds on for the London Marathon to be the hottest ever
| 23 April, 2018, 21:58

But the roads are different, and quickly Kipchoge and Kitata found another marathon gear.

Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge (centre) poses with the trophy after winning the Men's London Marathon alongside second placed Ethopia's Tola Shura Kitata (left) and third placed Mo Farah.

"I feel very surprised still, it's unreal, that was incredible", said De Rozario, who won T54 Commonwealth Games gold just over a week ago. Eliud is a great marathoner who has more experience with the marathon, and today is one of those things; you be a man, fight like a man, or start off in the back and regret it later on. I was knackered at 30 kilometres and he just stepped up another gear. I've got a lot to learn about the marathon but as long as I can keep doing it.

"I can say I enjoyed the race".

Farah, who retired from track athletics to focus on prolonging his marathon career, was involved in the hottest London Marathon on record, something that certainly made his job that much harder.

Farah was at the back of the lead group despite twice making a mess of picking up his water bottle at the designated drink stations.

Runners were seen to collapse in the heat - amplified by the tarmac and thousands of bodies - with one even stretchered across the finish line by medical staff.


"The drink station was confusing", he added. "They were helpful towards the end but at the beginning someone was trying to take a picture". I went to pick it up but it was the staff. "We have this advice going out from our medical director and I just wanted to let everyone know that's the current situation", an organizing official said.

Farah, who overcame early problems with his drinks bottle, fell well behind Kipchoge but still registered a time of 2:06:21 to break Steve Jones's British record achieved in 1985.

The women's race was just as fascinating as three-winner Mary Keitany and Tirunesh Dibaba setting off with their pacemakers in pursuit of Paula Radcliffe's world and course record from 2003.

Vivian Cheruiyot wins the London Marathon.

Britain's David Weir won the men's wheelchair race at the London Marathon for the eighth time after a thrilling sprint finish.

The Briton won in 1:31.15 while Switzerland's Marcel Hug came second and American Daniel Romanchuk third.
