Little Scottish boy tries to race marathon runners... and it ends in a faceplant

He ALMOST won.

YESTERDAY BROUGHT US the women’s marathon event at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

As the two Kenyan runners in the lead – Flomena Cheyech Daniel and Caroline Kilel, two of the best runners in the world – paced through the streets of Glasgow, a local youngster decided to take them on.

He made a strong and heroic start.

But in the end, a misplaced step was his downfall.

The world is with you, small Scottish boy.
