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.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
