Simon Kindleysides becomes first paralysed man to complete London Marathon after 26-hour race

Simon Kindleysides becomes the first paralysed man to complete the London Marathon after a 26.5-hour race. Kindleysides, from Norfolk in England, walked the 26.2-mile marathon course using a "Rex" exoskeleton suit. Kindleysides was diagnosed with functional neurological disorder and a glioma brain tumour in 2013. This left him paralysed from the waist down, according to UK media. "I've proven a point: anything is possible," he said in emotional scenes surrounded by friends and family after completing the race.
