Women’s marathon world record holder Brigid Kosgei says she is looking forward to defending her title at this year’s London Marathon.
Organisers announced the 25-year-old Kenyan’s inclusion on Monday.
Kosgei broke Briton Paula Radcliffe’s 16-year-old record at the Chicago Marathon in October.
She said: “Last year was an incredible year for me and it started by winning in London. Coming back will be very special.”
Kosgei’s record-breaking run came six months after winning the London Marathon for the first time.
