ATHLETE Iwan Thomas MBE raised a laugh after crossing the finish line – and nipping for a quick sit down in a nearby wheelchair.

The 38-year-old, who represented Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the 400m at the Olympics and Wales in the Commonwealth Games, said: ‘It was horrible really! I did a half-marathon last week so I thought this would be a lot easier.’

He finished the 10-mile course in 72 minutes – two minutes faster than last year.
