London Marathon, 1st Ld-Writethru,235

UK weather Met Office Bookmaker Coral has made it odds on for the London Marathon to be the hottest ever

An exhausted Sir Mo broke the marathon record by a British athlete as he finished third in the men's race, despite an initial 11-second discrepancy between the two official times.

Tola Shura Kitata of Ethiopia stayed with Kipchoge until close to the end but the 2015 and 2016 champion strode clear to win with a time of 2:04:17 - two minutes 20 seconds off the world record.

Welshman Jones, who won the London Marathon in 1985, set his British record time of 2:07.13 in Chicago the same year. I just had to go with it and see what happened, and if you're gonna die you're gonna die.

"I know I can go at least 2.04, 2.05, in an even-paced race, today it was the hardest way to run in any race".

"It's so different to being on the track, it's different pain and different training but I've enjoyed it".

'The crowd really got behind me, it was an wonderful atmosphere.

"I gave it 110%". "To be honest, the older I get, my endurance is getting better". Mentally you've just got to be strong, take your drink and just pace yourself. "So I was telling the people 'can you please just tell us which one is our drink because it's exactly the same bottle". Fellow Kenyan, Brigid Kosgei, was 1 minute, 42 seconds further back and Tadelech Bekele of Ethiopia was third.




Three-time victor and defending champion Mary Keitany of Kenya led the race up until the last eight kilometres, but came fifth. "I had to get that right".

Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya became the first person to finish the race and became only the third three-time men's champion and cemented his status as the king of the roads.

"Top ten, a personal best and a qualifying time for the European Championships, I can't have any complaints, though I would have liked to have gone faster", said Partridge.

After nine miles Keitany and main rival Dibaba were 25 seconds ahead of Radcliffe's time.

Six-time Paralympic gold medalist, David Weir has won for the eighth time the 2018 London Marathon men's wheelchair title.

The 38-year-old Weir clocked 1:31:15 to beat Marcel Hug of Switzerland into second place, while Daniel Romanchuk of the United States was third. Dibaba, who momentarily stopped in last year's race, plaintively tried to rally again before dropping out.
