On London Marathon crowd support:

I’m definitely conscious of them [supporters] and I definitely pick up on the energy… Every fast mile split came when there were a lot of people around me. I don’t think that’s a coincidence – you pick up on that, and you pick the pace up without even thinking about it. Birdcage Walk was amazing. I imagine it’s what running through the crowd at Wembley stadium would be like.

Last-minute advice:

Make sure you eat well the night before and the morning of the race, and make sure that you’ve got enough fluid inside you. And keep warm at the start; take some old kit that you can throw away because your kit will have gone on the buses to the finish
