Elsewhere Chris Ashby from Polegate ran his first ever full marathon, achieving a time of 5 hours 18 minutes. Over time I hope to get it right so my aim is to continue.

James Stockle was among the thousands of runners who took part in the 26-mile event yesterday (Sunday April 22).

Farah came home in a time of two hours, six minutes and 32 seconds, comfortably inside Welshman Steve Jones' previous best of 2:07:13 for a Briton over the distance, set at the 1985 Chicago Marathon.

She is the first Australian to win the London Marathon's women's wheelchair event. And it was a great field today.

'But to finish third with a personal best, a British record, on the podium, I can't do any better than that.

"I can say we enjoyed the race. Even the last 10km when I was bolloxed".

Eliud Kipchoge won the race for a third time in a time of 2.04.16. There is occasionally a discrepancy between the starting gun and the chip at the finish, but that is normally a second or two, not 10 or 11.

"I'm satisfied with the result". "I am the silent man behind the scenes", he said.


Gunners fan Farah added: "Maybe next time I will get an Arsenal one". I fought as much as I could.

"The guys went for it, they were on for world record pace, so it was do or die".

"I can't complain about the weather, it was the same for all 40,000 competitors. After 30K, I was definitely feeling it; obviously with the pace slowed down a bit, I was exhausted but managed to hang in there and come away third'". "There was certainly a lesson in the drinks station around halfway: "(It) was quite a confusion", he said.

"I was saying to the people on motorbikes to tell the staff to be a bit helpful instead of taking pictures". So when I was trying to grab my drink I was grabbing his drink and he was grabbing my drink.

"I wasn't wasting energy, I just needed a drink".

Politicians from across the political divide have congratulated London Marathon winners Eliud Kipchoge, Vivian Cheruiyot, and Brigid Kosgey who finished second.

Women's sport trailblazer Kathrine Switzer, 71, who made history in 1967 by competing in the then men-only Boston Marathon, also completed the course.

Kipchoge, who skipped last year's race to attempt a sub-two minute marathon in Italy, bagged two massive cash prize wins. "Not in the back of my head".
