It was a great achievement for English who explained “I have been struggling with a back problem.

“I struggled with my nutrition on the day and after a strong first half I got a little dizzy at Mile 18.

“I got some gels on course and finished the last couple miles strong. It was a tough day mentally, being out in front from the gun.

“I will take a well-deserved rest now and target a spring marathon” he added.
