Sunday sport

Some of the record 29,000 runners set off in yesterday's London Marathon which produced one of the most thrilling finishes in its 17-year history when Liz McColgan of Scotland came within a second of retaining her women's title after fighting her way back into contention in the final three miles, just failing to see off Joyce Chepchumba of Kenya in a desperate sprint up the Mall. The men's race was won by Antonio Pinto of Portugal in a course record of 2:07.55, with Richard Nerurkar the first Briton home in fifth position. One competitor, a man in his forties, died after collapsing during the race. In a day of non-stop sport, Chelsea beat Wimbledon 3-0 in one FA Cup semi-final while Chesterfield forced a replay with Middlesbrough after equalising 3-3 in the last minute of extra time; Jacques Villeneuve won the Argentine Grand Prix; and Tiger Woods, 21, the American golf sensation, set off with a final-round nine-stroke lead in his bid to become the youngest winner of the Masters
