Bekele in a hurry for London glory

Radcliffe still holds the overall women's record of 2:15.25, which she set in a mixed gender race at the London Marathon in 2003.

Radcliffe had also been the holder of the women's-only record thanks to her time in the 2002 Chicago Marathon but Keitany squeezed past that by 17 seconds. She finished in 2:17:56 for second place and set a new Ethiopian national record while also becoming just the third woman to break 2:18.

Manuela Schar meanwhile won this year's women's wheelchair race with a new course record.

Robbie Simpson and Andrew Davies finished 15th and 16th respectively while Swansea's Josh Griffiths, running his first marathon, was the first Briton across the line in the mass event in 2:14.49 and could now qualify for the British team for the World Championships.

SLOUGH: A Star Wars fan will run the London Marathon dressed as a Stormtrooper to warm up for a 40-mile slog through Pinewood Studios and Black Park. From there I said to my coach: "I am ready to win the London Marathon", Wanjiru said after the victory.

Western Michigan University's Davis projected to go in first round
Davis also is getting acquainted with the Titans' other first-round pick, another playmaker in USC cornerback Adoree' Jackson. Corey Davis was expected to be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft , but very few thought he would be drafted at No. 5.

The Hitchin woman is raising money for the Miscarriage Association and said: "A miscarriage is one of the loneliest forms of grief".

Meg explains how they've been preparing: "We've ran with the costume once at Silverstone as part of the Guinness World Record trial".

In the marathon, running 2.10 and winning would not give you full happiness.

Britain's David Weir won a record seventh London Marathon men's wheelchair title - and afterwards called it his "best victory ever".

Each year the London Marathon brings together thousands of people. "I think the course has changed a little bit and it felt better than before".

Kelly Ripa set to announce new co-host for 'Live'
So who will the new co-host be? Strahan left the show on May 13, months before the date that was initially scheduled. Finally! Kelly Ripa revealed her new Live cohost on Monday May 1, almost one year after Michael Strahan's exit.

He says his wife and 11-year-old twins are very supportive.

"But I knew I had it in the last corner".

Simon said: "I chose to run for Prostate Cancer UK because of the wonderful support and help the charity provides for men and their families".

Bekele was third in London previous year and said he really enjoyed and learned from the experience. Karoki held on well to take third in his debut in 2:07:41.

The shock of seeing Bekele gaining on him appeared to refocus Wanjiru and he extended his lead late on, consoling Bekele with a warm hug when the latter crossed the line.

Iran says 'terrorists' kill 10 border guards near Pakistan
The report added that the pro-Sunni militant group, Jaish al Adl (the Army of Justice), has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Iranian chief executive further said certain countries are targeting the Muslim world's unity through proxy warfare.

Meg Walker tells us why they've set themselves such a unique challenge: "Me and some of the other CLIC runners realised that no one has attempted this before, so we made a decision to go one step crazier and do something different".
