London Marathon runner who drank glass of wine at end of each mile reveals how he felt after 25 glasses

A London Marathon runner who has gone viral for drinking a glass of wine at the end of each mile has revealed how he felt at the end of the race.

Tom Gilbey, 52, took on the challenge to raise money for the hospice where his mother was cared for in her final days.

Instead of drinking water to keep hydrated after each mile, Mr Gilbey had a different glass of wine - consuming 25 glasses in total.

In an incredible achievement, he completed the 26.2 mile run in four hours and 41 minutes, and has raised over £13,500 for Sobell House Hospice Charity in Oxfordshire.
