A smiling Paula Radcliffe brought the curtain down on her glorious career on Sunday as she raced the Virgin Money London Marathon for a final time.

The 41-year-old returned to the scene of her greatest triumph – her staggering world record of two hours 15 minutes 25 seconds set on the streets of the capital in 2003 – to bid an emotional farewell to competitive marathon running.

The days of running those sorts of times are over, but the cheers from the crowds lining the streets were as loud for her as any of the champions as she came home in an unofficial time of 2hrs 36mins 55secs.
