LONDON (AFP) - Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge won the men's London Marathon on Sunday (April 28) in an unofficial time of two hours, two minutes and 38 seconds - the second-fastest time for a marathon.

Only Olympic champion Kipchoge himself has gone quicker over the distance with 2:01:39 in Berlin last year.

Sunday's victory gave him a record fourth win in London.
