    Ethiopian distance running legend Haile Gebrselassie, the former four-time World and double Olympic 10,000m champion has announced that subject to a fitness test over the Half Marathon distance at the end of this month, he will join the start-list for the Flora London Marathon on 17 April.

    If Gebrselassie does compete it would be his second outing in the London race and the 31 year-old would face arguably the greatest marathon field ever assembled including friend but athletics arch-rival Paul Tergat of Kenya, the World Marathon record holder.
