Running his first Boston Marathon, Lawrence Cherono of Kenya won the men's competition in the closest finish in the men's race since 1988. A mere two seconds separated Cherono and Desisa, who went step-for-step during the final stretch before the former crossed the finish line a few steps ahead of the runner-up.

Fionnuala McCormack ran a personal best at the Boston Marathon and only just missed out on qualification for Tokyo 2020 - barely six months after having a baby.

Japan's defending champion Yuki Kawauchi finished 17th in 2:15:29, while GB's Scott Overall was 23rd in 2:17:37.
