Mo Farah Breaks 33-Year British Record

2016 Berlin Marathon victor Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele was targeting a first victory in the London edition but he ended up at sixth position with a time of 02:08:53.

Eliud Kipchoge and Vivian Cheruiyot are the winners of the 2018 edition of the London Marathon.

Julie Jones said: 'I think the spectators would do a better job filming on their phones than the BBC are managing for the London Marathon'. Ethiopia's Tadelech Bekele cut off the possibility of a Kenyan 1-2-3 coming in third in a time of 2:21:30 while Gladys Cherono finished fourth in 2:24:10.

But things did not go completely smoothly and as he tried to stick with a fast early pace, Farah became agitated after he picked up the wrong bottle at one drinks station and then knocked his on to the floor at another.

Kipchoge, who skipped last year's race to attempt a sub-two-hour marathon in Italy, could not break Dennis Kimmetto's world record as high temperatures made running conditions hard in the English capital.

"It was a hard way to run the pace because we were set for the world record pace at the beginning..." I was table four, I went to pick it up.

"It's so different to the track".

"My season has been really good and my training actually doesn't need to be tested".

"I gave 110% like I always do".

Kipchoge raced out of the start on Sunday, with the leading group registering a blistering opening mile of four minutes 22 seconds, but the Kenyan couldn't maintain that pace as temperatures rose more than 20C.

In the aftermath, the multiple Olympic track champion was seen to be having a heated debate with a steward on a Motorbike.

"The drink station was confusing", he added. I got a personal best.

Sir Mo Farah tore up the history books yesterday, as he finished third at the 2018 London Marathon.

Farah was in a far better mood discussing his result, lightheartedly suggesting he could compete in the Athletics World Championships in Doha next year.

"I know what I'm capable of and I'm going to do the rest of the marathons in the autumn as well and race the guys".

Three-time victor and defending champion Mary Keitany of Kenya led the race up until the last eight kilometres, but came fifth.

Keitany was a colossal 32 seconds ahead of Radcliffe's 10-mile time, with Ethiopian rival Tirunesh Dibaba for company. But, unlike 12 months ago when her sole pacemaker Caroline Chepkoech peeled off the course just beyond Tower Bridge, Keitany still had two pacemakers for assistance.

But confusion started when later "official" times confirmed a time 11 seconds slower.
