London Marathon executives are also keen to have him back for the 2019 edition after his impressive performance at this year’s race. 

Scotland’s Callum Hawkins, who collapsed while leading the Commonwealth Games marathon earlier this month, and Jonny Mellor, who was left out of England’s squad for the Gold Coast, are also not travelling, meaning there is an all-woman marathon team for Berlin.

British Athletics performance director Neil Black said: ‘Several British men fulfilled the qualifying standard and it was the intention of the selection panel to have representation in Berlin however personal preference or injury means no places were accepted.’
