There's Mo limits - the tale of the London Marathon

Kipchoge wins London Marathon, Farah third Patience Pays For Vivian Cheruiyot In London Marathon

Brigid Kosgei of Kenya was second with Tadelech Bekele of Ethiopia third.

London Marathon runners received a royal send-off as the Queen pushed the event's start button, sending thousands of competitors pounding through the capital's streets.

Although the Met Office predicted rain in the afternoon, the morning, when runners will set off, is when temperatures are set to peak.

"Acceptable for me would be knowing I mixed in with the guys, I fought for it, and that I ran a personal best", Farah told the BBC this week.

Last year, the event raised £61.5 million for charity, a world record for an annual one-day fundraising event, making the total raised since 1981 around £890 million, organisers said.

"That would be a great start for me".

"I'll have some time off now but not as much as previous year".

"It's all new for me".

The annual race has raised £890m in total since 1981 and continues to grow in popularity, with 386,050 people applying to take part this year - nearly a third more than in 2017 and the highest number for any marathon in the world.

Vivian Cheruiyot shocked favourite and fellow Kenyan Mary Keitany to win the London Marathon for the first time on Sunday but failed to break Paula Radcliffe's world record as high temperatures took their toll.

Cheruiyot, 34, took advantage of failed attempts by last year's victor Mary Keitany and runner-up Tirunesh Dibaba to break Paula Radcliffe's 15-year-old world record.

But the quickest that Radcliffe ever ran a marathon was when she posted a time of 2hrs 15 mins 25 secs in winning in London in 2003.

"She was an inspiration and that world record is still ahead of me as a lifetime goal". It's weird that my endurance pace has got a lot better as I've got older.
