Eliud Kipchoge wins a record fourth London Marathon

It is the Kenyan's first win in the London Marathon and she crossed the line over a minute ahead of second-placed defending champion Vivian Cheruiyot.

British Olympic legend Mo Farah finished fifth on a breezy day in England's capital, as he continues his education of the longer distances.

His public feud with Ethiopian Olympic gold medalist Haile Gebrselassie did not appear to affect Farah who lapped up the applause from the home support that lined the streets.

Elsewhere, American Daniel Romanchuk won the men's wheelchair race for the first time, beating the likes of eight-time champion David Weir.

Swiss athlete Manuela Schar won the women's wheelchair event for the second time -- after setting a course record in 2017.

The rest of the field simply couldn't handle the pace as Kipchoge put his foot down at the halfway mark and then again with just over a mile left to run.
