Kenenisa Bekele went into the 2017 London Marathon the heavy favourite. But after a first half under world record pace, the Ethiopian fell well off the lead pack. He later claimed that it wasn’t his fitness, but his shoes that caused him to alter his stride and slow down.

He was battling a blister caused by a new pair of Nikes.
