Kenyan athlete Wesley Korir on Boston marathon blasts

The 2012 winner of the Boston Marathon, Kenya's Wesley Korir, has told the BBC he was celebrating the victory of his compatriot Rita Jeptoo in the women's race, when he heard of the deadly blasts.

At least three people died and around 140 were injured following two explosions near the finishing line.

Mr Korir told the BBC's Alan Kasujja the attacks had ''overshadowed everything''.
