Prince Harry Awards 2018 London Marathon Winners With Medals

Farah now, incredibly, holds the British records over 1,500m, 3,000m, 5,000m, 10,000m, the half-marathon and the marathon.

Steve Jones's mark had stood since 1985 but Farah, who finished third behind Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge and Ethiopia's Tola Shura Kitata, clocked 2:06.21 in the hottest marathon in the race's history.

Completing the race in one hour 42 minutes 58 seconds on Sunday, she beat four-time champion Tatyana McFadden with American, Susannah Scaroni, coming in third. Despite warnings about the heat many still chose to run the 26 miles in fancy dress.

Competitors started from Blackheath, south east London, running a snaking route along both sides of the Thames, finishing on The Mall near Buckingham Palace.

Meanwhile, nearly 100 runners lined up to attempt Guinness World Records - dressed variously in suits of armour, as mythical creatures and wearing stilts and ski boots.

"I came to London to run a attractive race and today I ran a really handsome race", said Kipchoge. "I've beaten some good runners". Still, he has time to ideal his technique, which was rough in London.

In the men's wheelchair race, Briton David Weir stormed to a eighth London victory after a thrilling finale with three athletes racing for the line, while Australia's Madison de Rozario won a shock first title in the women's event.

Saudi drone restrictions following palace incident
Riyadh and Tehran are locked in a decades-long struggle for supremacy that is being waged in several countries, including Yemen. But the government ruled out any major security breach, adding that an investigation had been launched into the incident.

Sir Mo said he would spend time with his family after not seeing his children due to a strict training regime in Ethiopia during the last three months. "When they went away, then the next target was that British record". You get heavy legs.

Eliud Kipchoge won the men's marathon for the third time while his countrywoman, Vivian Cheruiyot, won the women's race for the first.

The race marks Harry's second event of the weekend.

"My aim is to run another marathon in the autumn and then see what happens in the summer of 2019 in Doha".

The defending champion had said all week that she was more than capable of breaking Paula Radcliffe's world record of 2 hours 15min 25sec, set here 15 years ago.

In the aftermath, the four-time Olympic gold medallist was observed to be having a heated debate with a steward on a motorbike and he later claimed marathon staff were more interested in "trying to take a picture" than doing their jobs.
