London Marathon Winner Defecates in Public During Race

The female winner of the London Marathon, Olympic runner Paula Radcliffe, has described the embarrassing moment where she was forced to stop running due to stomach cramps and defecated on the road.

Onlookers were initially concerned that Radcliffe may have been dropping out of the race, as happened at the Athens Olympics, but were astounded to see her pre-race meal drop out instead.

"I was losing time because I was having stomach cramps and I thought 'I just need to go and I'll be fine'" she said. "I want to apologise to the nation. I didn't really want to resort to that in front of hundreds of thousands of people."
