Sir Richard Branson has pledged that Claire Lomas, from Leicestershire, will receive a trophy for completing the London Marathon after organisers said she would not finish in time.
Lomas, 32, who was paralysed from the chest down in a horse-riding accident in 2007, is the first to walk the marathon course in a "bionic" suit.
Sir Richard tweeted:
A paralysed woman who completed this year's London marathon wearing a robotic suit is preparing to cycle from Paris to London.
Leicestershire woman Claire Lomas who has been competing in the London marathon despite being paralysed, finished the race today.
