Runner dies following Lisbon half marathon

Very sad news coming out of the Lisbon Half Marathon today: one runner, a Dutch man, died after completing the circuit. The Maratona Clube de Portugal – organisers of the event – have not given any further details. Temperatures in Lisbon were in the 30ºs today. Another runner suffered a “serious medical” issue, but has since been stabilised. Winners of the event were Ethiopian woman Tsehay Gemechu Beyan (repeating her victory of last year), and Kenyan athlete Kenneth Kiprop Renju.
