Daniel Wanjiru on Sunday held off favourite Kenenisa Bekele to claim victory in the London Marathon elite men’s race.
He won in 2:05:56.
Ethiopian great Bekele entered the race as the overwhelming favourite but his challenge appeared to be faltering as he slipped back during the middle stages of the race.
But he eventually found his rhythm and burst through the field to challenge Wanjiru, but was unable to find a way through.
