Dorando, he's a good-a for not: the most amazing marathon in history
Upon reaching the stadium, a hot, exhausted and dehydrated Dorando was dead on his feet. Unsure which way to turn as he stumbled into the arena, he went the wrong way before being ushered the correct way round the track by British officials. His legs soon buckled under him and he fell to the floor, unable to move.
