BBC Sport - Dave Bedford: Kenenisa Bekele unlikely to run London Marathon
Bekele unlikely for Marathon - Bedford
- From the section Athletics
Former London Marathon race director Dave Bedford tells BBC London's Sara Orchard that Kenenisa Bekele, the 5,000m and 10,000m world record holder, is unlikely to take part in this year's race.
Great Britain's Mo Farah will run his first marathon in London on Sunday, 13 April but Bedford warns it "will not be a walk in the park" for the double world and Olympic champion.
Bedford, 64, the former 10,000m world record holder, was awarded an OBE in the New Year's Honours.
