Around 36,000 runners pounded the streets of Greenwich yesterday (April 13) for the 34th London Marathon.

Celebrities, elite athletes and fun-runners took part in the 26.2mile course which kicked off in Greenwich Park and saw Olympic champion Mo Farah finish eighth in his marathon debut.

However, the strenuous event was not without tragedy as a 42-year-old man died after collapsing at the finish line of the race.

While an elite woman athlete from Sierra Leone, who had been staying near Greenwich, went missing after finishing in 20th place.

Police said Mami Konneh Lahun, 24, vanished after the race when she had been due to fly home later today.
