This year's London Marathon has seen fantastic sights this year as more than 38,000 runners took to the streets of the capital.

Of course it would not be complete without many people dressing up to support a variety of causes around the world.

During the past few weeks, we have introduced you to some of the determined west Londoners taking on the 26.2-mile challenge which begins in Greenwich and ends in Westminster , near Buckingham Palace.

Not only were course records set, but a world-first took place as Astronaut Tim Peake took part in the event from space and finished in an estimated time 3:35:21.

Major Peake took part in the marathon on a treadmill while watching the streets of London pass underneath his feet on an ipad.
