Former England striker Michael Owen tweeted:
A paralysed marathon competitor has finished the London Marathon, crossing the finishing line on The Mall 16 days after the race began.
Claire Lomas completed the 26.2-mile route, which she started on April 22, using a bionic ReWalk suit.
The 32-year-old, from Leicestershire, was left paralysed from the chest down following a horse riding accident in 2007.
Claire Lomas has completed the London Marathon after 16 days on the road. She has become the first to complete any marathon using a pair of 'bionic legs.'
Claire Lomas has raised more than £85,000 for charity during her incredible marathon challenge. The money will go to Spinal Research - see her JustGiving page here.
