Last competitor completes the London Marathon after 50 days

Former stunt-rider Eddie Kidd has completed the London Marathon almost two months after the event formally finished. Mr Kidd, who suffered brain damage in an accident in 1996 has walked for up to a mile every day since 17th April using a specially-designed walking frame, finally completing the course at 6.30pm today, 6th June. In the process, he has raised more than £72,000 for the charity Children with Cancer UK.

What an inspiration. If you'd like to acknowledge Eddie's achievement with a donation, you can do so here.
