London Marathon runner Abdelhadi El Harti gave spectators more than they bargained for as he completed the gruelling race. The Moroccan was competing in the 26.2 mile race in the ambulant class back in 2017 and delivered a second-place finish with an impressive time of 2:29:38. But he hit the headlines after flashing his manhood to spectators as he made his way to the finish line. El Harti flashed his penis out of the bottom of his shorts, much to the shock of the crowd as the race continued in London. And it appeared at the time that one spectator appeared to catch it on camera as she was seen looking at her phone in shock after the pro runner had made his way past her.

Thousands achieved dreams today as the London Marathon brought together some of the most determined runners from across the world. More than 40,000 people took on the 26.2-mile run after Lionesses Leah Williamson, Jill Scott and Ellen White got the race underway. But one runner quickly stole the spotlight with a mad dash at the starting line. Richard Lee-Wright’s decision to boldly sprint ahead spurred smiles across the nation as viewers – and fellow runners – marvelled at his joy. Three-time winner of the event Paula Radcliffe noted the feat too, although she warned: ‘That guy is going to be paying for it.’ Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Richard explained the speedy start was the result of a determination to prove a friend wrong. He said: ‘It all started about six years ago. A friend and me were watching the London Marathon and he said, obviously, that they run really fast. ‘I told him “I could lead the London Marathon” and he said there was no chance.’ Richard … [Read more...] about Runner who sprinted to front of London Marathon speaks of ‘dream come true’
London Marathon is well and trully underway, with runners already chasing stardom. At least 42,000 people from all corners of the world flocked to the capital for one of the most exciting events of the year. They will run the 26.2 miles from Greenwich to The Mall, and raise millions of pounds for charities in the meantime. Over the years, advice from those who have previously taken on the mammoth challenge has been to ‘take it slow’ and ‘pace yourself’. But one unnamed man at the very front had a different idea. Moments after Lionesses Leah Williamson, Ellen White and Jill Scott pressed the buzzer for a final time this morning, he bolted. Dressed in a pair of black shorts and blue tank top, he can be seen metres ahead of everyone else. Elite runners are normally at the front of the pack but maybe he will give them a run for their money. We cannot tell if they looked concerned with his speedy start and we hope he also does not regret it later in the race. … [Read more...] about London Marathon runner will regret absolutely legging it from the start

Boris Johnson hit out at Labour’s “abject failure” to invest in nuclear power and said surging bills would be less severe if they had acted. The outgoing Prime Minister criticised Tony Blair, saying “thanks a bunch, Tony” for his government doing “absolutely nothing” to invest in the UK’s energy supplies . He also blamed Nick Clegg, the Tories’ former coalition partner, for saying it was not worth developing new nuclear reactors because they would not come on stream for a decade. “For 13 years, the previous Labour government did absolutely nothing to develop this country’s nuclear industry,” said Mr Johnson. “They said it didn’t make economic sense. I think they even said that in their manifesto. Thanks a bunch, Tony, and thanks a bunch, Gordon [Brown]. “Tell that to the British business and industries that are short of affordable electricity, tell that to the families struggling with the cost of heat and light this winter.” Speaking at the Sizewell B power … [Read more...] about ‘Thanks a bunch, Tony’: Boris Johnson hits out at Labour’s ‘abject failure’ to invest in nuclear power
