The 39th London Marathon has been won by Kenyan distance specialist Eliud Kipchoge, who scampered over the line ahead of a huge field, and kept on running - all the way back to Kenya!

Kipchoge, 38, completed the 26 miles and 385 yards in a time of 2 hours 2 minutes and 38 seconds, but instead of wrapping himself in tinfoil, as runners tend to do these days, he sprinted out of the event area, through the streets, and into South London. From there he ran into Kent, and to the Euro Tunnel.

Once there, he ran into the Tunnel, and nearly three hours later, emerged in France. Kipchoge kept running, through France, always with the port of Marseilles in mind. He finally boarded a vessel for Oran in Algeria, but ran around the deck until it reached North Africa. When it did, he was off again, headed for his homeland.

Kipchoge ran the London Marathon wearing a business-like black suit with white shirt and a red tie, explaining:

"I have to get home quickly. I have a job interview on Wednesday in Nairobi, and it's important that I look presentable.""
