World marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe has become the first Briton to win the Abebe Bikila award.

The honour is given by the New York Road Runners to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to distance running.

"The name 'Bikila' represents so much in distance running and it is a huge privilege to join the list of winners," said the 32-year-old Radcliffe.

Bikila, who died in 1973, was a double Olympic marathon champion for Ethiopia.
