Kenya's Priscah Jeptoo wins the women's London Marathon ahead of compatriot Edna Kiplagat.

Kenya's Priscah Jeptoo has won the women's London Marathon in an unofficial time of two hours, 20 minutes and 14 seconds.

Jeptoo, 28, came home comfortably ahead of compatriot Edna Kiplagat, with Japan's Yukiko Akaba a surprise third.

Jeptoo, who won silver in this event at the London Olympics, was third in almost an identical time last year.

Olympic champion Tiki Gelana collided with wheelchair racer Josh Cassidy after 15 kilometres as she cut inside to get to a drinks station and never competed afterwards.
