Emmanuel Mutai made it a Kenyan double after winning the Virgin London Marathon in a new course record. Mutai's time of 2:04.38, beats the previous best of 2:05.10 set by Samuel Wanjiru in 2009 and also the fifth-fastest time ever.
Earlier, his compatriot Mary Keitany smashed her personal best to claim a commanding victory in the women's race.
I really enjoyed my 6th time covering the London Marathon. The weather was a little warm and sunny for those taking part, but ideal for those working and watching. I love working the marathon, its always a great atmosphere and everyone is so friendly, it makes working long hours easy. A few more favourites below.
