Elite men's race victor Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge (L) and elite women's race victor Kenya's Vivian Cheruiyot pose during the trophy ceremony of the 2018 London Marathon in central London on April 22, 2018.

Eliud Kipchoge won the men's marathon for the third time while his countrywoman, Vivian Cheruiyot, won the women's race for the first.

Farah become the fastest marathon runner in British history after breaking Steve Jones's record that stood for 33 years.

Last year's victor Mary Keitany and runner-up Tirunesh Dibaba clearly had Radcliffe's record on their minds but the sweltering conditions proved too much and allowed 34-year-old Kenyan Vivian Cheruiyot to claim victory.

Farah, who won gold in the 5,000 metres and 10,000m in the past two Olympic Games, admitted his second full marathon had taken its toll in a race where there was a world record pace at the halfway point. Find us on Facebook too! It was do or die, I went for it and hung in as much as I could. He started his marathon career with a win in Hamburg, Germany in 2013 and lost his only race in Berlin the same year to Wilson Kipsang, who set a world record of 2:03:23.

"I really enjoyed today, I gave 110% like I always do".

There were 34 Guinness World Records as runners cautiously braved temperatures of up to 24°C in all manner of fancy dress costumes.

"The staff were helpful at the end but at the beginning they were trying to take a picture rather than giving me the drink."

Vivian Cheruiyot savours her victory after winning an Olympics gold medal in 5,000m in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil previous year. I had to get it right.

"The reason it was so good for me today was because I started slowly".

Kenyan Mary Keitany and Ethiopian Tirunesh Dibaba - who had both hoped to break the 15-year-old record for best women's time - both finished further down the pack. "I want to thank everyone out there for their support".

Indeed, Keitany and Dibaba took the warm morning conditions with a brutal attack with some fast-pace backed up by four male pacesetters. "I promised a attractive race and it was", he added.

The thousands of sun-bathed British fans had already found plenty to cheer as David Weir outsprinted Marcel Hug to clinch an eighth wheelchair crown on his 19th appearance at the race, while Madison de Rozario claimed Australia's first women's wheelchair title as she snatched victory from four-time champion Tatyana McFadden. The 38-year-old pipped Switzerland's Marcel Hug into second place, with Daniel Romanchuk of the United States third.
