    Olympic champion Peres Jepchirchir smashed the women’s-only world record to win a thrilling London Marathon.

    The Kenyan kicked for home as she turned down The Mall and won in two hours, 16 minutes and 16 seconds.

    Four runners were in with a shout down the final straight and Ethiopia’s Tigst Assefa came in second, ahead of Joyciline Jepkosgel in third with Megertu Alemu fourth.

    The previous world record for a women-only race was 2hrs 17mins 01secs by Mary Jepkosgei Keitany in London in 2017.

    Marcel Hug won a record fourth-consecutive men’s wheelchair race.

    The Swiss ‘Silver Bullet’, 38, clocked 1:28.33.

    Daniel Romanchuk of the United States was second with Britain’s David Weir third in his 25th consecutive London Marathon.

    Weir, 44, said: “The conditions were so tough, very windy. But I’m happy with my performance.

    “Keeping up with Marcel for 20 miles, it was one of the best races I’ve done on this course.

    “Some of these guys are 10 or 20 years younger than me. But I promised myself I’d come back and get on the podium.”

    The women’s wheelchair race was won by a distance by another Swiss, Catherine Debrunner.

    The 29-year-old, who broke the course record to win the race in 2022, came home over five minutes ahead of her nearest rival.

  • Former British and Commonwealth boxing champion Willie Limond dies Former British and Commonwealth boxing champion Willie Limond dies

    Former British and Commonwealth champion Willie Limond has died at the age of 45, the St Andrew’s Sporting Club has announced.

    Limond fell ill last week amid preparations for a fight.

    A statement from the Scot’s boxing club read: “Everyone at St Andrew’s Sporting Club are shocked and deeply saddened at the loss of our friend, Willie Limond.

    “Willie was not only a legend of the sport, but an infectious character who will be greatly missed by us all.

    “Our thoughts and prayers are with Jake, Drew, Macy and the rest of the Limond family at this time.”

    Former opponent Curtis Woodhouse was among those to pay tribute to Limond.

    Limond beat Woodhouse to retain his Commonwealth light-welterweight title at Glasgow’s Braehead Arena in 2014.

    Woodhouse posted on X, formerly Twitter: “Absolutely devastated to hear the news of the passing of Willie Limond, a great fighter and a great man.

    “We stayed in touch after our fight and always had a laugh together. Absolutely gutted. Rest In Peace champ.”

  • Ronnie O’Sullivan calls for World Snooker Championship to be moved from Crucible Ronnie O’Sullivan calls for World Snooker Championship to be moved from Crucible

    Ronnie O’Sullivan has called for the World Snooker Championship to be moved from the Crucible, naming Saudi Arabia and China as possible alternatives.

    The Sheffield venue has hosted every edition of the tournament since 1977 but the seven-time champion believes the time has come for change.

    The 48-year-old will seek to win a record eighth title when the championship begins on April 20, having recently competed in the Saudi capital Riyadh and the Chinese city of Yushan.

    “I don’t like the Crucible,” he told the Sun. “I don’t think you can get in and out of it. I think definitely it’s a wise decision to take it away from Sheffield.

    “Still have a tournament there. Why not? But just not the world championship over 17 days. It’s a massive circus and you need a massive space to accommodate it.

    “I think Saudi Arabia would be great. They’ve got the resources and would do it great. If you’re going to take it to China, you’d have to take it to Shanghai. Or another major city like Shenzhen or Guangzhou.

    “It’d be done properly. Courtesy cars will be laid on. Food will be there. Hotels will be great. Everything would be paid for. Prize money would be astronomical.

    “The snooker becomes secondary. What are the facilities like? What’s it like for the fans? What’s the access like? You don’t need a 10 out of 10 venue. But everything else has to be right.”
