She might have won the London Marathon three times in the past - once in a blistering 2:15:25 - but this time she was just happy to finish, to huge cheers from watching crowds.

"I didn't care about the time all the way round and I just wanted to thank as many people as possible," Radcliffe told the BBC.

"I went off way too fast and then it got more and more emotional. It was just amazing the whole way round."

She said the "magic of the London Marathon" helped her finish.
