Olympic champion Samuel Wanjiru held his nerve to win the men's London marathon in a new course record time of two hours five minutes, nine seconds.

The Kenyan, 22, battled with Ethiopian Tsegay Kebede to take the win after he finished second last year.

"I am very happy to see I got the course record, maybe next year I will break the world record," said Wanjiru.

Olympic bronze medallist Kebede finished second while silver-medallist Jaouad Gharib finished in third.
