Kenya's Jacob Chesire breaks Belfast Marathon record

Kenya's Jacob Chesire ran the fastest ever Belfast Marathon in winning the traditional May Day holiday race in two hours, 14 minutes and 56 seconds.

He broke Marty Deane's city record of 2:15.51 which had been achieved over an easier course in 1985.

Three-times Belfast winner John Mutai was runner-up for the second year in a row but was well behind in 2:19.55.
