London– World record holder Brigid Kosgei retained her London Marathon title with a commanding performance on a wet and closed course in the city this morning.

The 26-year-old Kenyan, who broke Paula Radcliffe’s world record in Chicago last year, crossed the finish line in 2:18:58 to claim the $30,000 (£23,200) prize.

Sara Hall came second with 2:22: 01 while Ruth Chepngetich was third with 2:22:05.

The 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon, rescheduled from its traditional April date because of coronavirus, is taking place over 19 laps around St James’s Park.
