Mo Farah of the United Kingdom came third, breaking the men's British marathon record with a time of two hours, six minutes and 32 seconds, reports Efe.
Eliud Kipchoge KEN crosses the line to win the Elite Menís Race.
This year's marathon, the 38th, was the biggest in history and by 7pm 40,255 had conquered the hottest race day on record to cross the finish line in The Mall and pick up their hard-earned medals and souvenir finishers' T-shirts, beating last year's record total by 768 runners.
But confusion started when later "official" times confirmed a time 11 seconds slower.
The 35-year-old multiple Olympic and world track medalist may have finished two minutes behind Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge, who made it a hat-trick of wins following his successes in 2015 and 2016, and runner-up Tola Shura Kitata of Ethiopia. "I didn't go with the faster group because the faster group was quicker than I was at the start", Cheruiyot told the BBC. It was do or die, I went for it and hung in as much as I could.
It is so different to the track. I really enjoyed it. "I gave it all, 110 per cent as I normally do".

Two deputies killed in Florida, authorities say
Noel Ramirez , a seven-year law enforcement veteran, and 25-year-old Deputy Taylor Lindsey , a three-year law enforcement veteran. Asked how this attack would change how they continue to work as law enforcement officers it hadn't crossed Rhodenizer's mind.
For Farah the pace began to takes its toll as early as 17 miles, even before hitting the proverbial wall: just before halfway he also ran into trouble, failing to collect the correct bottle at the drinks station, and with that dropped some 20 metres on the leaders. "Definitely a tick to getting the new GB record. I haven't seen my kids in three months and I am excited to see them". "I want to thank everyone out there for their support".
And, the heat clearly got to Farah during the race, as he grasped for bottled water handed out by race volunteers.
"I know I can go at least 2.04, 2.05, in an even-paced race".
"The staff were helpful at the end but at the beginning they were trying to take a picture rather than giving me the drink."
Kipchoge's victory was the 14th by a Kenyan man in London and his victory completed a seventh London double by the east African nation after compatriot Vivian Cheruiyot had overhauled record-chasing favourite Mary Keitany for the biggest win of her burgeoning road race career.
Cheruiyot took advantage of failed attempts to break Paula Radcliffe's 15-year-old world record by last year's victor Mary Keitany and runner-up Tirunesh Dibaba.
