A record field of runners have pounded the streets in soaring temperatures to complete this year's London Marathon.
The 36,500 athletes made their way around the famous 26.2 mile course in sunny weather which hit highs of 23C. Extra doctors, vast supplies of water and special walk-through showers were on hand to help them deal with the heat.
Many of those taking part in the event, which passes famous London landmarks such as the Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, before finishing in The Mall, were running for charity.
