In the women's race, it seemed like three-time victor Mary Keitany was headed for a huge win, but she seemed to be struggling in the final seven kilometers of the race with Cheruiyot taking advantage to burst to victory.

Vivian Cheruiyot wins the London Marathon. The oldest runner of all, Samuel Starbrook, 87, was some way back with a time of 8:21:44.

'The drink station was confusing, I was table four, I went to pick it up, ' Farah saidtold the BBC.

Farah said: "I was saying to the people on motorbikes to tell the staff to be a bit helpful instead of taking pictures".

Multiple track champion Vivian Cheruiyot stunned pre-race favorite Mary Keitany to bag her second career marathon victory, winning in London in a Personal best time of 2:18:31 ahead of compatriot Brigid Kosgei.

The original finishing times given for the race were revised after organizers discovered a computer error.

It is the first time that the London Marathon has registered more than 40,000 finishers during the hottest race day on record, beating last year's record total by 768 runners.

"I came to London to run a lovely race and today I ran a really handsome race", said Kipchoge.

"I can say I enjoyed the race".

He had been in the lead from the start with the likes of Kenenisa Bekele and Mo Farah attempting but in vain to match his majestic steps.
