Eliud Kipchoge won the 2018 men's London Marathon as Sir Mo Farah finished third in a British record time.

His time was a new British record, beating Steve Jones's 1985 time of 2:07:13, but he was just over two minutes behind Kenyan victor Eliud Kipchoge.

"I am knackered", said the 35-year-old, who broke the British marathon record.

"It's so different to being on the track, it's different pain and different training but I've enjoyed it".

So, naturally, when on Saturday, they spotted the FLOTUS sitting alongside Barack Obama and smiling - it got everyone talking. Their wives, as well as current first lady Melania Trump were also there to pay respects to Barbara Bush .

"I gave it 110%".

Still not long afterwards Farah was admitting both his satisfaction and intention to go faster, in no way doubting the marathon would be his ideal distance come Tokyo 2020. That's what's fun in London, you never know what you're going to get. Mentally you've just got to be strong, take your drink and just pace yourself. I went to pick it up but it was the staff. I wasn't wasting energy, I just needed a drink. Cheruiyot clocked two hours, 18 minutes and 31 seconds, picking her second career Marathon victory to lead a Kenyan 1-2 finish with Brigid Kosgei coming in second.

Mary Keitany and Tirunesh Dibaba, who were first and second respectively in 2017, threatened to break Paula Radcliffe's world-record time but faded over the second half of the course.

Kenya's Vivian Cheruiyot crosses the finish line to win the elite women's race of the 2018 London Marathon in central London.

Scotsman David Weir was also celebrating after the race, winning the men's wheelchair title for the eighth time. "I had to get it right".

The front of the race was down to three leading men; Kipchoge in front, with Tola Shura Kitata on his shoulder, with Farah adrift on his own in third, but still running both British and European record-breaking pace.

Kipchoge, who skipped last year's race to attempt a sub-two-hour marathon in Italy, could not break Dennis Kimmetto's world record as high temperatures made running conditions hard in the English capital. The 38-year-old held off stiff competition from Switzerland's Marcel Hug and the USA's Daniel Romanchuk. "I can't do any better than what I did", Farah said.

Aviation Police Dictate jet engine Reviews
An FAA spokesman said the agency disputed that it had not agreed with European regulators on the response to the engine issue. Jennifer Riordan, 43 and a mother of two, was sucked out of the broken window and pulled back inside by fellow passengers.

Despite breaking the British record with a time of 2hr 6min 21sec, Farah voiced his frustration after a freaky incident during the race, which the Daily Mail said was the hottest on record with a temperature of 23.2 deg C.
