Lelisa Desisa gave Ethiopia its first world marathon title since 2001 on Sunday winning in a time of 2hrs 10min 40sec. The 29-year-old led home an Ethiopian 1-2 - Mosinet Geremew (2hr 10min 44sec) taking silver and Kenya's Amos Kipruto was third (2hr 10min 51sec). Desisa - a two-time Boston marathon winner who donated his 2013 medal to the city following the bomb at the finishing line - emulated compatriot Gezaghne Abera's win in the 2001 marathon in Edmonton.
