A SCOTTISH man with cerebral palsy has completed the London Marathon on Sunday, raising money for two local charities.

Andrew Tomlinson, 40, from Glasgow, capped off the six major marathons when he finished the London Marathon on Sunday, having already run Boston, Berlin, Chicago, New York and Tokyo.

Tomlinson (below) has hemiplegic hypertonia cerebral palsy which means he cannot respond with his left arm or left leg.

He was raising funds for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice in Glasgow and the My Name’5 Doddie foundation, which funds research into treatments for motor neurone disease.

“I’m a great rugby fan, I’m a Scot and I grew up watching Doddie Weir when I was a young boy,” Tomlinson said after completing the race.

After running in Tokyo three weeks ago, Tomlinson said: “Crowds in London are far superior. It pushed me on. I probably ran a wee bit quicker than I expected to, because I’ve not been feeling good.

“I reckon I’m the first person with cerebral palsy to do all six majors,” he continued, adding: “I’ve also ran in under four hours which I suspect may be a world record.”

More than 50,000 people are running the 26.2-mile course through London on Sunday, making it the largest turnout in the marathon’s history.

The 2023 marathon, the world’s biggest annual one-day fundraising event, raised £63 million for thousands of charities.

Among the famous faces who took part in the race was Chancellor Jeremy Hunt and Matt Hancock (above), whose appearance on Laura Kuenssberg’s show on Sunday caused environmental campaigner Chris Packham to produce a hilarious reaction.
